Damrod
24 WoMT w/shields
10 Rangers of Gondor w/spears
5 Rangers of Gondor
8 Citadel Guard w/spears

Points: 599

im a theme guy, I like the beregond and aragorn combo more than damrod. I like your initiative, only 300+ days to go till the next GiTD!

Both forces are What if Aragorn went to Gondor in Return of the King instead of Gandalf.

Denethor would have locked him up in a deep dark hole. :)

I really don't like either of the forces.

Force A has only one hero of gondor to protect and BEregrond cannot protect himself (See GW FAQ). Once Beregrond is dead (easy task) then you lose the bodyguard benefits.

Force B only has Damrod as the bodyguarded figure, whicle while tougher than Beregrond he's still a soft target all things considered. If you hide him then you lose his Might and combat potential.

Both forces are almost at 50 models with Aragorn!!! These have been my biggest lists with Aragorn.

I'm impressed with your model count. My Gondor force has no named characters, no elites, and I can only manage 47 models!

He doesn't have any cavalry or banners, you do.

A banner would make my model count 46. I think having a higher model count is better than a banner. Aragorn is one of the most expensive heroes in the game and it is hard to get a high model count number.

Aragorn with a banner behind hm is just plain sick! Of course I say that because I've been a victim rather than a benefactor of that combination.

I have used that combo before and it is nasty. What would an alternative to the lists?
