I'm going to have 700 new style in these lists at least.

Corsairs of Umbar
Dwarves

I'll also try to build up a Gondor and a Harad list at 700 new books as well.

I would suggest 600 of either new or old. I don't think the point values would change for Adepticon regardless of what happens list-wise. 700 may be the future but I hate to jump to that just because some think that is better.

I guess the team has a 700 point stage in it so maybe a 700 point practice list for team would also be appropriate.

I'm planning new 600 points lists but maybe I'll have 700 points ready just in case.

Yes, I should be there at 5pm and hope to play a game or two until maybe 10(?) I'm going to do some 600 point lists and I'm thinking, if people are up to it, we try some old Adepticon scenarios as the events this year will likely stick to those scenario formats rather then the new scenarios. That will change for next year I'm sure but we already have the scenarios ready to roll so I think we'll have to make due for this year.

I plan to call the Bunker and let them know we are coming in hopes if insuring at least some table space.

The Grey Co. will be there around 3. I hope to use the warbands list with the old scenarios to see how that plays out. I do not however think we should show up at the bunker and play legions lists and legions scenarios, I think that be frowned upon by the bunker staff. Just my 2 cents.

Bummed I can't make it. Please post up some battle reports. I'd like to hear how the new warbands play.

I know I will only be using a list from the new books but I don't think I'm going to tell people what they should use. I really don't see the Bunker have a big issue. It's not like we are going to be bad mouthing the new books and insisting on Legions forever.

Sounds like a plan. I would like to try the new scenarios too, with a warbands list. Hopefully you can make it at 3.

Unfortuntaltey I have to cancel for Saturday. Sorry guys. I'll see if I can find some time for games before Adepticon. Let us know how the games go.

Thanks,

Jamie

Sorry you can make it, Jamie. I see others will be there around three. I may be able to make it then. I don't have the new books, but I'll bring paper, pencil and a calculator, if someone will let me scan their book. I'm either bringing Rohan or Ithilien/Minas Tirith.

you can look at my book.

That being said, I just tested my Corsairs for the first time at the 600 point level (take the list I posted, drop out 3 Arbalesters, 5 swords and 4 spears and the Hasharin and replace them with 4 reavers and a Corsair Captain with 2HW) against a grey company list (2 arnor captains, 4 RotN, 16 rangers some with spears, a Knight of the White tower leading 6 MT warriors w shield and 6 MT Warriors with Shield n Spear). Game was Domination. I ended up winning 19 VP to 1. Almost everything was deployed in the 1-3 zone. That change in engagement range was utterly huge. In an old style LoME game, I would have probably been close to broken before reaching him. I lost 9 models the whole game.
