Wanting to start playing LotR, any adivce?

Post by Honourblade » Mon Dec 15, 2014 7:14 pm

Hey guys,

My local is starting up a LotR tournament, and I am wanting to get involved, I always liked Minas Tirith, so I am going to go with them, problem is I don't understand a single part of he rules and what is good and what isnt.. Any advice would be appreciated! I want to run Aragorn if possible and the King of Eagles so it looks cool.. But I dont know normal point sizes and all that stuff.. Please help!

well can be tricky

1st I advice you getting the sourcebook with the belonging army youre looking for.
Before you go into any tournament i do highly highly advice you to play games with friends 1st to get familiarized with the rules, the game aint hard to get but not 2 easy either.

Im just not giving you an example of a list cause youhave to be self judgement to see which units will fabour you or not and you know all tricks of your army...

You got kinda hasty wanting to jump on a tournament right there

Haha! I will be getting those this weekend, I just wasnt sure, cause I am torn between Minas and Elronds Household.. And it is a local escalation type league to get new players into the Hobbit

And yeah, sorry, just want to be able to win as opposed to learning through constant loss

you will learn more through constant loss rather trhan winning I can assure you that.
What 1 mistake is made it will hardly made the 2nd time, if you dont suffer from it you´ll never learn.
