Hurray!
Today I found my 80 lost Moria goblins and 34 gundabad.
I like my old 1000-pts list:
-Durburz
-140 Moria goblins (46 w/ bow, 47 w/ spear and 47 w/ shield)
-32 Gundabad (16 w/ spear)

a 1000-pts list with 173 models.
I know its not possible now with the new warband rule

i know, thats why it was so good. i was killing goblins on 3s, i was higher fight, and if i did lose, they needed 6s then 4s to kill me. but now, you cant even make a army of the dead list because there is only the king of the dead which is unique so only 12 models, so thats the king and 12 riders. thats only 388 points. either way, i play an arnor list now, with the elf twins, gwaihir and a great eagle, malbeth the sear, 3 rangers of the north, and 20 rangers of the north. 25 bows total. and then malbeth giving 5+ saves and the eagles doing what eagles do.

Sounds good. I thougth 'bout doin a Arnor-list a while ago with Malbeth, the king and a captain. Two with 12 warriors each and one with 12 rangers. Mostly for I think it would look kinda cool. But when I was going to buy the models it would be to expensive for me. And I went back to my Rohirrim army.

Does Malbeths rule affect everyone or only Arnor-soldiers?

all good models. so i could take him to give warriors of the dead a 5+ save on top of their def8. also, the arnor list wouldnt work like you said it. its wierd and it actually takes a while to make because only the rangers in the warband of a dunedain or ranger of the north dont count toward the bow limit. if a ranger is with a captain, they do count, but you still have to remember that they count for models allowing more bows outside. basically they are all heroes while they are with a dunedain and ranger of the north. but you can also only put 4 rangers with each dunedain or rotn. it takes a lot of troubleshooting to make an arnor list filled with bows.

Thanks for the reply! I am currently on my phone without sourcebook so I cannot change the list as of this moment, although I will post a re-written one soon.

you can play army of the dead still... diference is that you have to get other heroes like captain of dol amroth anf such...or named characters from fiefdoms.,,

you ca represent them as warriors of the death captains(although not as good in terms of terror and wounding courage)

you could adopt my house rules for some of the dead guys and in my games friends let it anyway...

*change king stand fast to also affect captains of the dead and archers of the dead*


Captain of the death(spirit) points value:80

Bound by a curse Isildur set upon them
for defiance his will and not helping in the hour
of Gondor´s most need, these ghostly warriors are
ruthless, fanatical and loyal lieutenants who enforce
the will of their accursed king, they patrol on his
ghostly accursed realm in search for those who are
not ment to venture into their forbidden path and slay
those who opose them.

Move.......F___S__D__A__W__C__M/W/F
6"/14cm_4/4+_4__7___2__2__7__1_4_2

Wargear:
Armour

Options:
- shield................................. 5 points
- spectral bow(bow)...............10 points
- spectral horse.....................20 points

Special Rules:
Terror

Blades of the Dead: When determining what number
the Dead need to wound their oponents, use the
oponent´s Courage rather than its Defence on
the wound chart.

The Dead and the Living: Only warriors, archers and
riders of the Dead may use the Captain´s stand fast.

Spectral bow: Much of the warriors of the dead long gone
weapons are unbued with some fell power and much like
their wraith like blades, armour proves innefective against
these eldritch bolts and only a foe´s courage is the only
thing that might save em. Spectral bows count as normal
bows but when determining what number the dead need
to wound their oponent, use the oponent´s Courahe rather
than its Defence on the wound chart.

Spectral horse: Accursed and long gone like their master´s,
these steeds are a bound to soul with his former owner and
never to unbound for eternity until one day Isildur´s heir might
lift the curse and release them from their burden.
Spectral horse give the Captain of the Dead the cavalry type
unit and when aiming at the Captain the Dead, the horse
profile is ignored for the purposes of dismounting like if both
horse and rider are one profile.




Archer of the Dead(spirit) points value: 20

Amongst the ghostly horde some warriors
were proficience in the use of bows before Isildur set
a curse on them. Although long gone for their corporeal
bodies, these archers still retain all the cunning and
mastery of their long role and with lethal aim and ruthless
efficience they bring down their foes from afar with ghostly
soul piercing bolts of their bows.

Move.......F___S__D__A__W__C__M/W/F
6"/14cm_3/4+_3__7___1__1__6

Wargear:
Armour and spectral bow(bow)


Special Rules:
