I picked up the 2005 LotR rulebook cheap on ebay recently and I'd like to get into the game.

I know there are several rules published since 2005, stuff like weapon qualities (I've seen model entries mention Piercing and Bash) and the warband rules.

Do I need to get a newer rulebook or is there an errata PDF or similar that can provide the rules I'm missing?

I read the explanation of the Warband rules on this forum and if I understand them correctly a warband is 1 hero and up to 12 other models. The 33% bow limit is per warband, not army wide. A warband is deployed together, but from deployment they can move about as they choose.

One thing I'm not clear on though is if I can use warbands from different lists in the same army?
Specificially I'm considering combining Durins folk with Erebor dwarfs, mainly to get access to some spears.

On the subjet of Durins folk, is it correct that I need the Free Peoples book to get the rules for most of their models on GWs site?
The rule book I've got now only includes some of the heroes, warriors and Khazâd Guard.
