Great to see some Batreps for the SBG.

I'm planning on setting up some small (100 to 200 point teams) games but with multiple players.. possibly 3-5 players on the same board, going for the same objective, and without teams.
Not sure how that will play, but it should be interesting.

I have two and a half armies for WotR, so that's more than enough to make a bunch of SBG teams. Another local WotR player would be contributing from his two armies (Dwarves and Easterlings) as well.

Honestly, I enjoy LotR SBG, but I prefer the lager WotR rules. The only problem is that it's not really supported (no stats for the new Hobbit figs, for instance) and it's harder to get into.

I've got a couple of 1500 point armies for WotR, but obviously collecting 150+ GW models will cost you.
Whereas, I could get a new player into the SBG for the price of a hero and a box of plastic minis.
