Does anyone have any good ideas for an Aragorn 600pt list.

Don't. :-P

Aragorn works best as the leader of hero forces. The fellowship model works well enough especially if you can keep them mounted. The Grey company model doesn't work too well, though Aragorn, the twins and a bunch of mounted Rangers of the North (I converted mine from plastic Riders of Rohan) is a decent force.

I really haven't seen Aragorn-centric forces do that well against all comers. Of course my exposure to him is somewhat limits as well.

EDIT:
Gandalf the Grey with Horse
Aragorn - Strider with Horse, Armour & Bow
Boromir of Gondor with Horse
Legolas with Horse & Armour
=================
Warband
Aragorn - Strider with Horse, Armour & Bow

Warband
Elladan and Elrohir with Horse & Elf Bow

Warband
Halbarad DĂșnadan with Horse

Warband
Ranger of the North with Horse

Warband
Ranger of the North with Horse

Warband
Ranger of the North with Horse

Warband

Warband

Points = 595
Models = 9

Of course Aragorn should have Anduril at this point.

Is a 32 model count army bad now? I still prefer LOME over these new books.

Most forces for Good will come in around 39 models at 600 points. The highest model count with a Good "horde" at this point level is 49. Of course you can easily break that barrier with Hobbits.

Evil forces can get 52 models easily in most cases. My Mordor orcs can reach 65 and still be viable. Moria goblins can get even larger, though mine still hover at 65 models.

So for Good, 32 is alright if it has an expensive hero or an elite army. How does Strider fit in now since he cant take any Gondor solider?

You treat him like an independent hero, but since he isn't he can still be you force leader. He just deploys as his own warband. In most scenarios this isn't much of an issue.
