Hi all!

I thought that it would be fun to see what everybody would take if you can take one warband on 200pts from there main army. So if you want, post your warband here(pic would be nice to). I start:

-3 w/ throwing spears
4 Warriors of Rohan
-3 w/ throwing spears and shield
-1 w/ banner
1 outrider

for my Goblin town goblins i use:

1x Grinnah - 40pts
9x Goblin warriors - 36pts

1x Goblin captain - 35pts
9x Goblin warriors - 36pts

1x Scribe - 50pts

197pts - Total

For my Erebor dwarfs I have a very elite list and mainly for fun but may as well show you any way

1x Thorin w/Orcrist 10pts, Oaken Sheild 5pts - 115pts
7x Grim Hammers - 77pts

192pts - Total

Now if you dont mind me de-railing a bit but still keeping on the topic, what would be a good Mordor 200pts list and a competitive 200pts Erebor dwarfs list. Sorry if it de-rails it a bit and if you want i can come back and delete this part if you want respect92.

Not sure how effective your erebor dwarf list is.
I know Thorin is a big deal to kill goblins, but youre largely outnumbered and grimhammers not that good, they <are decent lets say, but the options of the weapon fight style only benefits greatly if you want to tag in thorin i na fight, and he can´t be everywhere, the goblins o nthe other hand their special attacks dont actually makes them worst, they got a puny defence and fight value, so they will always use the weapons special skills, which in case they win + numbers will certaintly maul even the sturdiest grim hammer :/

My recommendation is to, or give a character that totally rocks and hes really really hard to kill and can chew through ranks or simply invest on cheaper ones to balance even more for your side.

If I wanted to make some war on this, maybe getting hmmm

Some thorin´s company dwarves, some are cheap and get usefull skills, and maybe another warband just regular dwarf warriors or dwalin.
If I was just for dwarves well.... expensive but the kings champion is hard as a rock to break even for puny goblins would chunk a large problem to handle him and his heralds.

Thanks for the tips francisco. The Erebor Dwarf list was just meant to be a little bit of themed fun and not a very serious list but the statements you made about the goblin list alarmed me and brought my attention that I had no powerful Characters and only hoards (not much there but more would of come from the scribe). So for that I thank you a lot.

I don't know what character to put for my goblins however due to the only powerful goblin town character that comes to mind is the goblin king and he is 120pts taking up 60% of the list.

For the dwarfs would a king's champion or Dwalin with a few standard dwarf warriors from the free peoples codex be a good 200pts? Also would a few Erebor warriors be just as the warriors good due to good defence and spears?

Also would this be a good 200pts Mordor list?:

1x Shagrat, War leader of Cirith Ungol - 110pts

1x Mordor Ork Shaman - 50pts
8x Ork Warrior - 40pts

I thought it would be good due to a strong hitting character with hyped up Ork warriors (due to shaman's furry) supporting him with him. Any good?
