On the upside, chances are you'll have to roll four dice 1,295 times in order to get double snake eyes again, and then it probably won't be for something so critical. :P

Consider it payback from Lady Fortune for all of those magic Marauder arrows.

Cheers,

500 Pts - Minas Tirith Roster

1 Warband @ 344 pts (Aragorn, King Elessar)
1 Aragorn, King Elessar (Hand Weapon; Anduril - Flame of the West; Heavy Armour; Mighty Hero)
6 Warrior of Minas Tirith (Hand Weapon; Heavy Armour; Shield)
4 Warrior of Minas Tirith (Hand Weapon; Spear; Heavy Armour; Shield)

1 Warband @ 155 pts (Faramir, Captain of Gondor)

Is this too small for 500 and is 32 models too small for 600?

I haven't played any 500 point games. At 600 points thirty two models is lower than what I think is average (39 models), but not terribly so. I'm not sure your choice of heroes will overcome your troops inability to inflict harm.

I still haven't gotten any free nights to go out and play yet, but I've been working on models nonetheless in the moments I do get. On the subject of small forces I decided to look into another White Council force that would allow me to use my Gandalf on a cart and Saruman on a horse. They aren't particularly tough looking as a group, but it's got some tough heroes to try and pin down. Especially the two elves since they extend their Woodland creature rule to their mounts which makes Legolas a great shoot and scoot model. Glorfindel is a great assassin with his ability to dash in kill stuff and then dash back out. The two wizards have enough range and Will between them to be nuisances. While mounted (and with the charge) they are still dangerous combattants. I just have to keep them from getting bogged down and trapped.

I'm pretty much done with the Legolas mounted figure while his dismount is already finished. Saruman is finished in both mounted and dismounted forms. Galdalf's cart is in pieces and hasn't even been started while his dismount is already finished. Glorfindel is partially finished mounted and otherwise.

Did they ever put out an armoured and mounted Glorfindel, Lord of the West, figure?

White Council Warband
===========================
Saruman the White on Horse
Gandalf the Grey on Gandalf's Cart
Glorfindel, Lord of the West on Horse
Legolas with Armour on Horse

Models = 4
Points = 600
Might = 12

I don;'t think there was ever a mounted version of Armored Glorfindel.

So I either use one of the twins and do a head swap or just use the grossly out of scale unarmoured models.
