There are loads of LotR players around here... I can't remember who they are... Heph, japhelio, Vulture. To name just a few.
I've moved and fiddled with the title of your thread to help get more relevant hits (i.e. LotR folks).

Love LotR stuff for a ton of reasons:
- slightly smaller minis really help to improve one's detailing skills
- finally a chance to field orcs without putting a smile on everybody's face
- a fantasy-setting game without regimented gameplay (prefer the skirmish feel to stuff like WHFB)
As for playing I have a ton of minis from pretty much all armies just for fun. Currently one project away from touching up on my Isengard force and there are plans (and sealed) minis waiting for the start of a combined mordor / fallen realms WoR army ;)

I'm a big LotR fan. I like the LotR SBG game, i'm just getting into War of the Ring.
Over the past 2 weeks i've stopped painting WH High Elves and prepared another 40 riders of rohan. I've now got over 90 riders painted up :D
Also got a bit of an isengard army, and i'm planning on building the River Isen for an epic Thoedred v's Isengard battle

Believe me, although it's good, it's expensive if you want to play WOTR!
I know as I play fallen realms 2! LOL!

Im hoping to get together either an Uruk Hai force, or dwarven one for LotR's, love the miniatures.

LotR has a way different feel to it, since it was design for people play fellowship missions.
Dwarves are cheese, at least, according to everyone I play :( Or perhaps it has to do with the 90-some models in my 1000 point force

I loved playing the Fellowship missions all the way through, was actually awesome. Especially when we attached the Mordheim injuries chart too the games as well...we ended up with frodo being a de-legged blind fool lol

Pretty much lol. Was good to see someone who got smacked by a troll actually suffer some damage lol...they only made it as far as the flight to Lothlorian heh.
