Right – as discussed at the club – sign up below with what force you’re using. If you want to borrow a force, post here and I’ll check what I have. Bear in mind figures should be WYSIWYG in terms of race/equipment and you may need figures to cover any promotions/recruitment as the campaign progresses.

Nicely laid out PDF with the latest campaign rules and companies in can be found here – www.one-ring.co.uk/kb.php?a=259 – although that’s an extremely fat pdf, I’m working on tidying it into a smaller word doc that can be emailed without bringing the internet to its knees.

Rules in use will be the Hobbit edition. Mostly similar to the old LOTR rules but with some tweaks. Stats and rules for your specific force will be in one of the last set of army books published, I’m sure I can supply you with the details. Figures should be LOTR ones where possible although given most are oop and those that aren’t are expensive I think some proxy models are inevitable. Dark Age figures are good - Vikings would work well for Dunland etc. Warhammer figures and other post-dark-age fantasy don’t work well. And painted figures only, we have some standards. No really, we do.

I’ll be playing either good or evil to boost up whichever side seems weakest.

Runners and Riders, some more tentative then others, so far –

Bradley – Haradrim or Easterlings (tbc)
Brett - Erebor
James - tbc (see above)
Trainset - Haradrim or Dunland
Steve - Dale (looking suspiciously like Saxons)
Ben - Lothlorian

Folks - apologies for the delayed start on this - on playing some test games the rate of recruitment is quicker than in the old version. So I'm having to buy/paint a few more figures! Still aim to kick off in July. We don't all have to start/play on the same nights.
