SAGA LOTR: 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.
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.
