I am, meeting my target. One battleboard down and SAGA LOTR is underway. I think this little side-project might shake a few people's spare LOTR figures out of storage, since two mates who would never have fielded WOTR armies have mentioned they might have enough for SAGA. I went the prettier route (though maybe a little marred by my layout!) and used the very nice blank board off the Studio Tomahawk site. It seems to suite the brutal Isengard style well.
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.
What's better, I have the army almost all painted, though maybe I need some of those Berserkers....
