Lórien Guard a Galadhrim Army

The three brothers

So honestly I picked up Galadhrim because I liked the models. But after reading more on them I find they are a awesome force that even though not really in the lord of the rings books did fight during the last battle in the war for the ring against Dol Guldur.

The one thing that I liked was the three brothers Rúmil, Haldir, and Orophin. Most people will only really know Haldir from the Helms deep battle from the movies. Rúmil and Orophin are his brothers that in the movie and the books took the fellowship to Lórien to meet with Galadriel and Celeborn. Haldir was the only one that spoke the common tongue.

The army I have made is to be the three brothers fighting off Khamûl the Easterling leading the forces of Dol Guldur during the War of the Ring. I have to use a normal captain for Orophin as there are no rules for him in the game.

Rúmil with elven cloak
4 Galadhrim Warriors with shields
5 Galadhrim Warriors with spears
3 Guards of Galadhrim Court

Haldir with armor and elven cloak
9 Galadhrim Warriors with bows

Orophin on a horse with a shield
Galadhrim knight with banner
5 Galadhrim knights with shields

8 might, 30 models, 15 break point

The idea is to move up  Rúmil  then hit them with the knights to deliver the knock out blow. The bows will just sit back and take out easy targets. This is a small army but with everything with high might and working together it should work out well.

Looks cool. I'll have to get some Dol Guldur soldiers and we'll have to fight. Khamul would love a chance to kill some flimsy elf things.
