We played HOTT again at the club this week. Rather than one big game the four of us played two one-on-one games using Geoff's Middle Earth armies.
The idea was to play 36AP on normal-sized board, but I played Lachlan in the first game, who hadn't played HOTT for years (if at all) so stuck to 24AP for what was a kind of learning game.
I took Orcs, and sorted out a kind of Riders of Rohan army for Lachlan, consisting of four knights, six spears and two warband. This was the setup. I had a ton of hordes in the centre, wolf riders on my right and some Uruk Hai blades on the left.
One week I plan to win a game of HOTT.
*Or maybe a Nazgul pretending to be Sauron.
