Wondering how well hero centric forces will do in this new warband style environment. Makes me want to bust out the Unexpected Party again:

Warband #1: Fellowship
Gandalf the Grey, Shadowfax
Gimli (Thorin)
Pippin (Bilbo)

Warband #2:
Balin (Balin)
Iron Guard x 9 (Fili, Kili, Oin, Bifur, Bofur, Dwalin, Nori, Dori, and Ori)
Dwarf Warrior, Banner (Bombur)

Warband #3:
Dwarf Captain, Throwing Axes (Gloin)

Still 15 models fit into 3 warbands.

Only in the extreme horde armies will I be outnumbered more than 3 to 1. Hmmm....

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what the actual crew will be when the Hobbit rules come out!

I definitely think this version makes your force even more viable.

Bah, I never checked for that. I just sort assumed he still had the option.
