Lord of the Rings Scenarios? And other ??
« on: May 13, 2009, 08:02:06 PM »
I was wondering if anyone had come up with some of the LOTR battles thru
the trilogy. Say for example the battle of Isengard, or Helm's Deep.
I figure joining the Hawks with the High Elves/Ravenwood vs. the Orcs, Goblins, Ogres, and Elephants.
And also trying to build a Helm's Deep or anyone of the settings from any of the
battles from the books/movies. Any ideas?

These scenarios would of course be pretty huge campaigns. So a "one off" night
wouldn't do I'm assuming.

Also is there any talk about more tiles that depict castles/towers etc;...
And is there any more of a magic system in place for any future releases?
Oh and also, is there talk about individual characters/leaders in card form or just command cards
that might be released? Or if anyone has any variants that they've used?

Cheers!

Any players in Central Mass?

I was thinking the same thing...the game is really close to being able to do all sorts of cool LoTR battles.  About all that is missing is Nazgul...maybe Death Knights with an added scream effect which causes fear checks within a certain radius (but the unit can't both scream and attack on the same turn), and add 40ish points to the cost?
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results. - Winston Churchill

It may be difficult to mangle the factions to fit the Lord of the Rings setting.

It may be easier to use the various DBA/HOTT/DBF conversions of Lord of the Rings battles instead.
