glad you put in the second Balista, because you WILL be facing Mumakil, and they will be invaluable in helping to take it down. I personally think the Kings Champion is a bit of a risk, being on his own, with only res2, even the "very hard to kill" wont save him. If he works, he works tho, (as anyone fighting a troll cheif can testify)...

why Galadriel tho, you going for heavy magic with a solid core of warriors?
considering both are "touched by destiny"... tho i would suggest Radagast, he is a real help. he can do all that Galadrial can do... and he has a pet!

Quite correct, Galadriel and Gandalf are to throw spells around, hopefully get my opponent blowing might to resist spells. Because in a lots of ways I could get really screwed unless I can delay a giant wave of units hitting me at one time. Also, I like being able to pull essentially a "free" epic defense twice a turn. That gets mean with dwarves

Except that I don't OWN a radagast model + I'm broke. :P

Also, I have had decent results with the Champion, as if he hits a unit with just a captain, and calls an epic duel at fight 8, he toast a company before he actually gets to fight.

Thats though
