Hi Guys, I had some Isengard troops banging around and heaps more ordered from Trademe, so I thought SAGA might be a good way to get some use out of them . There has been a bit of interest from others, as a away to actually get some use of spare figures. Below is my WIP for an Isengard board, if anyone else wants to use it. Image
I've kept the troop classifications pretty simple. Basically the only 'new' unit is the Troll, since I have the model and am fond of it.

Elite Uruk Hai: 1pt for four. These may be Elite Uruks (two attacks, Armour 5) or Berserkers (armour 3, 3 attacks).

Uruk Hai: 1pt for eight. Either Warriors (one attack, armour 4) or Uruk Pikemen (Always move S, Pikes prevent enemy mounted units using battleboard abilities). Or up to one unit of eight may be Uruk Crossbowmen (one attack, crossbow -1 enemy armour, armour 3 vs shooting).

Orcs: 1pt for twelve. May be equipped with bow (armour 3) or with shield and spear (armour 4, 1 attack per 2 models in melee)

Up to one Troll: 1pt. Counts as mounted (move L), armour 5, ignores first unsaved hit and each further failed save causes a wound on the great beast. A troll must be wounded three times to be felled. It has four attacks and causes -1 to enemy armour due to its great strength.

Wargs: 1pt per eight: Mounted, armour 3 vs shooting. Elite Wargs: 1pt per four: Mounted, armour 4 vs shooting, two attacks per model.

Next up, Elves!
Image

Elves:
This list models the Elven forces from Peter Jackson's movies so is intended to cover the Battles of the Last Alliance, the forces of Rivendell, and the forces of Lothlorien, including those who were at Helm's Deep. To reflect the scarce numbers of Elves in Middle Earth, most of the force will be composed of Eldar (Hearthguard in SAGA terms) and only up to two points may be spent on Avari (Warriors in SAGA terms) for every six points (or part thereof) in the warband. Elves have nothing like levies.

Options:
Any Elven foot troops may be equipped with bows, which then gives them -1 armour vs shooting.
Elven troops may be fielded mounted, giving them -1 armour vs enemy shooting but a move of L.
Elven troops may have Elven Cloaks. If so, they have -1 armour vs melee and shooting (but if armed with bow are not further penalised, ie still -1 vs melee and shooting). The cloak means they cannot be shot beyond M range.

Well done, very clever.
I have both Elves and Uruks, as luck would have it.
If you want to try them out one Thursday let me know.

We definitely should, at some stage. I am now on rosters so evening games are more restricted these days.
