What type of monster should I get for Mordor?

Post by WargamingPLUS » Wed Jan 30, 2013 10:24 pm

I have about a 800pt Mordor army, and with the new release of the Hobbit and the monster rules i want to add a monster to my army. I cant decide which monster to go with and i was considering doing a cave drake because of being a possible hero killer. I was also thinking of possibly a troll because its only 100pts and it has a fairly decent stat line. My last choice would be the Great Beast of Ghorgoroth because its kind of like a mini war Mumak with its slam, and it also has 9 orc warriors on top with bows that can shoot anytime they want. I want your opinion on it, so please vote in the poll.

Trolls are generally the safest bet as they give the most bang for buck and are relatively cheap. The Great Beast from what I have seen doesn't make up for his points cost and the Dragon is ok, just not the best unless your ok with having a bunch of cheap captains
