Whats the best way to use Aragorn in Lord of the Rings or War of the Ring?. I usually send him straight into close combat as fast as I can in the most direct route.

Best way is to change him to 25 rotal guard/guards of the fountain court.

Jokes aside, how does your army look more then aragorn?

Give him a bow and armour. Then you just advance so your ranger are in range to fire(including aragorn). Then back 3'' each turn and shower them with arrows. And remember the grey company, then you don't follow the normal bow-limit. But you can include 4 ranger with bow for each reanger of the north or Dunadain you have in your army. This can give you this list:

-Aragorn:
-Bow
-Elven cloak

-6 rangers of the north

-20 rangers

This result in 27 arrows per turn at 3+, of which 6 is strenght 3. This makes ca. 18 hits per turn(4 strenght3). If the enemy survives the arrows (about 5 turns=135 arrows) he is up against 27 soldiers with fight 4 (except aragorn with 6) and also 9might(+1 extra/turn from Aragorns Mighty hero).

Sounds good and I suppose you just multiply by how big of a battle you want.

Cavalry is always fun, remember to have them in cover until you are within charge distance of the enemy. They almost die as easily as normal foot-soldier for half the point-cost :?

You should add some overgrown ruins too, that archers could use as elevated position and cover, are you going to do a gaming board with fixed terrain-pieces or beside so you can change the look of the battlefield for each game?
