Army of the Dead

The Army of the Dead is interesting to play. It is very strong against opponents with low Courage, but very weak against opponents with high Courage. Couple them up with someone like Aragorn to counter the threat of opposing heroes and you will have a powerful force.

They are also quick to paint compared to most other figures.


Elves versus Gondorians

It is possible to break the mould and play good versus good or evil versus evil. All that is needed is to determine at the start of play which side is classedas "good" and which side is classed as "evil". This definition is important in determining which side winsa 50:50 roll off. It also determines the starting position and winning conditions if a scenario is being played.
