since they are all part of "the kingdoms of man" can you combine the human armys (I.E. rohan and arnor)

Yes. What do you guys think about the new way of building armies? (Up to 12 troops per hero)

es. What do you guys think about the new way of building armies? (Up to 12 troops per hero)

I think its pretty good, but it kinda screws over goblins. Also my army of the dead do suffer from it because I only want ghost's in my army.

I don't like it a lot because it reduces your option in list creation, for example, in my 500 points of Rohan list I only used one hero, now I have to use 3.

Its no too bad for Rohan considering that they can get cheap heroes, but i do see your point.

They can be any hero but in order for the hero to lead the war band he must be part of the same part of the army book(Fiefdoms, Rohan, Gondor ect ).

So say i take some swan knights of dol amroth i would take a hero from the fiefdoms to lead them and say i wanted to ally with elves i would take some elves and an elven hero to lead them.

They can be any kind of hero, icluding captains (Except a few ones that are independant and cannot choose folowers)

About Rohan, do they still have outriders in hero-section? If that so, rohan can include 3 heroes for 30 pts :). Before i thinked about this 500 army list: 1 outrider and 49 royal guard. Well, just to change 3 or 4 guards to outriders.
Goblins: I think they would have a special rule so they can take 18 or even 24 per hero.

Do the group (hero+12 warriors) need to act little like a unit? Not bsb but maybe the most 18" from the hero or something like that?

Mvh/respect
Please nerf damage of GW-prized minis.
Best regards the Wallet

No, outriders are troops now.
The groups don't act like a unit, they just deploy within 6 inches of the hero.
I haven't looked at the globlins book, but I think they don't have that special rule, I'm going to my local store tomorrow, I will tell you for sure then.
