New dwarf ranger list based on the new book.

Ok. A few weeks ago I played a couple 600 point games and I used this list for the second one.

Balin + Durin's Axe: 95 points
Gimli: 90 points
16 Rangers with Throwing Weapons: 160
15 Rangers with Bows: 150
15 Rangers with Double Handed Weapons: 105

46 warriors. So by the new rules I would need at least 2 more heroes.

So here's a potential idea for the new version of this.

Leader and Warband 1 Captain: Balin + Durin's Axe: 85 points
Warband 1 Followers: 8 Rangers w Throwing Weapons 80 points, 4 Rangers w Double Handed Weapon, 36 points. 116 points total

Warband 2: Gimli 90 points
Warband 2 Followers: 8 Rangers w Throwing Weapons 80 points, 4 Rangers w Double Handed Weapon, 36 points. 116 points total.

Warband 3: Murin and Drar. Drar Leader: 150 points
Warband 3 Followers: 11 Rangers w Bows: 110 points

Warband 4: Dwarf Captain Throwing Axes + Shield: 70 points
Warband 4 Followers: 4 Rangers w Bows 40 points, 7 Rangers w Double Handed Weapon, 56 points: total 96 points

So to keep the exact same number of warriors in the list and the points increase of the double handed weapons, the list is now 833 points. There are definite changes that will need to be made for my lists. This didn't even take into account that I would probably have buffed up the strength on at least some of the rangers (probably the throwing weapon guys)


Now on the other side, here's a dwarf list that works under the new rules that would not have worked under the old Legions rules and lets me use some models I've been wanting to try for a while. It's a 700 point list

Commander and Warband 1: Leader: Balin w Axe: 85 points
Followers: 4 Vault Warden Teams 100, 4 Khazad Guard 44: 144 points

Warband 2: Leader: Gimli: 90 points
Followers: 6 Warriors w Shield: 54, 4 Khazad Guard 44: 98 points

Warband 3: Leader: Shieldbearer (Balin): 60 points
Followers: 10 Warriors w Dwarf Bow: 90 points

Warband 4: Leader: Dwarf Captain w 2hw + Throwing Axe: 70
Followers: 4 Iron Guard: 60 points

This is 697 points. This lets me try using all 3 types of elite dwarves in one list and use the Vault Warden teams with named dwarf heroes other than Durin and Mardin.

thirty five models at 700 points? You'll get creamed. Whether anyone likes it or not numbers matter in LOTR. FV is nice, defense is great, but numbers is better than either of those. Though if you have both it's not as bad.

a few more than that, remember. Vault Warden Teams are 2 model purchases. There are actually 40 models in the list.

*Shiver in fear* :P :lol:
Vault Wardens are nice if you can keep them from being flanked. That's hard to do in some of the scenarios.
