Our first game went well, Khamul was definitely a force to be reckoned with!
I've put some pictures up on image shack hopefully you can see them ok. One of my 500 point army, one formation of my friends spiders. One where my formation of pikes set up between a tree line and another where a formation of spiders came crashing into them, only to be completely annihilated the very same turn! https://imageshack.com/user/lewesjamiey
My friend came in with 6 companies of giant spiders and a spider queen, along with 2 companies of spider broodings and Druzhag the Beastcaller as the leader - who summoned an additional 6 companies of spiders over the first 3 turns!
However his army was defeated on turn five due mainly to my pike formation stopping his spiders dead in their tracks, and his spider queen dying to a single volley of my archers (so much for the hard to kill rule?!)
We hope to play again soon once the remainder of our armies are painted. I plan to add 6 companies of haradrim, my mumakil and a formation of morgul knights to give me some cavalry, while my friend is painting up hordes of moria goblins as well as the 400 points dragon of ancient times! Hopefully after a few more skirmishes we will have the rules learned and can record the big game as a full battle report..
Thanks again for your help with the hard to kill rule,
