How about this combinationfor the Easterlings? It gives you a FV fighting line, two fighting heroes, one of which is a living banner. If you don't have a mounted Amdur then you could put that horse under the other hero per your original configuration.

Warband 1
Amdûr, Lord of Blades with armoured horse
6 Black Dragon Warrior with Shield
6 Black Dragon Warrior with Shield & Pike

Warband 2
Easterling Captain with Shield
6 Black Dragon Warrior with Shield
6 Black Dragon Warrior with Shield & Pike

Warband 3
Easterling War Priest
12 Black Dragon Warrior with Bow

Good options and I like it. Kataphracts have been a disappointment for a long time, but they should improve with a FV of 4.

I haven't played with Gondorians enough to provide much useful feedback on those lists.

The armies I have mostly settled on:


For Evil:
Warband 1 12/12
Amdûr, Lord of Blades with armoured horse;
12 Black Dragon Warrior with Shield;
----
Warband 2 12/12
Easterling Captain with armoured horse; Shield;
12 Black Dragon Warrior with Shield;
----
Warband 3 12/12
Easterling Captain with Horse; Bow;
12 Black Dragon Warrior with Bow;
----
The Kats got down graded to upgrade the archers to Black Dragons and give the heros mounts.

For Good:
Warband 1 12/12
Faramir, Captain of Gondor with Heavy armour; Shield;
4 Osgiliath Veteran with Shield;
4 Osgiliath Veteran with Shield; Spear;
4 Osgiliath Veteran with Bow;
----
Warband 2 12/12
Cirion, Lieutenant of Amon Barad
1 Ithilien Guard with Banner
3 Ithilien Guard with Shield;
4 Ithilien Guard with Shield; Spear;
4 Ithilien Guard with Bow;
----
Warband 3 12/12
Madril, Captain of Ithilien
4 Ithilien Guard with Shield;
4 Ithilien Guard with Shield; Spear;
4 Ithilien Guard with Bow;
----
Warband 4 0/0
King's Huntsman
----

Remains unchanged frome the orgional all foot force. Play testing has shown it to work well. Only real point of contention is the Ithilien Guard and if the free movement through forest is worth it.
