I've got 12 Riders of Rohan(4 spears, 2 axes, 2 swords, 4 bows) as well as 3 Rohan Royal Guard dismounted. I think 350 pts is a good number to start off and get to know the rules better. Any Ideas?
Thanks! :)

350 points are o.k. for a small game and for learning the rules. It shoundn't be less, for then the armies are not really balanced any more although they have equal points.

But you still need an hero as leader of your unit, so therefore you will get around 60 point on top. And another point to consider: a unit normally cannot have more than 12 warriors. So you are with 3 over this limit. If you want to use all your warriors, you will need yet another hero.

And one last advice: if you are using monted models, you should have some unmounted models of the same type, in case some riders loose their horses during game.

I hope that's helpful. just start playing SBG, don't expect too much, but at least have fun, and certainly you will improve very quickly.

We're not meant to list points values on the forum but - from memory, I think 12 riders is less than 350. You could proxy them as Sons of Earl or Royal Guard of Rohan mounted if you were trying to make up points against an opponent, though, and still have room for a big hero I think.

Swords and axes would count the same as a "hand weapon" unless they were two handed. The spears might count as "throwing spears" if you wanted them to, which would cost a few points extra.
