Yes that would be better .. D8
Might even be a possibility to make him a little more expensive and go to D9? Than he would be quite though to kill but still have the VH2K rules. I would say increase the defence with 2 and add 25 pionts.

What do others say of this?

Nine would be too hard for that IMO but then again think of Treebeard, so it could work logistically. At 8 he is tougher in WotR in SBG. In any case, I second the notion of a second opinion.

Anyone else want to comment on the defence of the Great Beast?

I had planned to surprise y'all with it yesterday, but whole family was off so I was a bit preoccupied. I can promise they will be up soon.

Looks very good! Just one question - why wouldn't Tom go for "Squash 'em to jelly" every time? It gives him more attacks on average for any formation larger then 1 coy.

I would say this is a very good special rule! You can get atleast 30piont extra on the field every turn.. I guess you should make like the additional goblins have just moved out of a terrain feature. They can;t move, charge or shoot in the turn the were summoned

Why does Azog have a lance? It makes him way better but it doesn't even look like the model has a lance.. I can't really imagine orcs using a weapon such as a lance.

Again with the lances? Super fell sight is waaaaayyy to strong in my opinion. on a succesfull charge they could get like 25 dice per company... that is without fight

why do the troll with leather armour have a defence of 7 compared to mordor troll with heavy armour who also have a defence of seven?? I really like their special rules though haha


I still think it's great that you made these rules gothmog! keep up the good work

Sorry for the delay guys.

@Telchar, the idea is for him to do that virtually all the time except when facing monsters. I forgot to add that when using Squash Em To Jelly he no longer gains bonuses for Fight value or charging.

@Lorindol: as follows

@Scribe - yes, it would be better if they couldn't move/shoot/charge when summoned though he would now be in competition with Druzhag. Still to OP though, not seen the profile in ages.

@Azog, the lance is Yazneg's that's why, from the original Azog, it's in the hobbit rulebook, it does seem odd since Azog no longer has a lance. It might be edited out for -5 points.

@Narzûg, Faramir is still a better deal, though I personally think 110 points Narzûg should be, maybe 100 though otherwise Gothmog outcompetes him.

@Fimbul's Hunters, have you got something against lances? I think the wording is a little off. I didn't mean that a 6 company formation would get 6 D3 bonus attacks for each company. I can't think of a way to make is slightly better than regular Fell Sight (like with Sharku's Hunters and Expert Rider) can you think of anything better?

@Trolls. Mordor Trolls with defence 7 don't have heavy armour just armour, Troll Chieftains with defence 8 have heavy armour. Just copying defences from SBG also like the other Trolls do. Also Defence 6 makes them too vulnerable to Strength 4 units.

Thank you both 8)

Thanks, looking forward to them, and appreciating your efforts! Let's hope Tauriel survives PJ's three movies to see the Battle of Mirkwood some 78 years later...

Oh, and if you have any house rule ideas for Grimbeorn in the Wardens of Carrock formation, allowing him to turn into a bear, I'd be interested... I've been entertaining an idea that once the last company is reduced to half, Grimbeorn is not removed but he transforms into a bear instead.
