title says it all. one of mine is having a orc cap on a warg with a axe (since my foot ones have a pickaxe so there is no confusion on what spec strikes he can do) charge a enemie and transfix them while piecing striking. having 6 strikes on something like a captain with str5-7 is amazing. having a task master near by and heroic striking can also do the trick as well.

Mine is probably having a ton of Warriors of Minas Tirith led by their cheap heroes holding the enemy while Imrahil and his Swann Knights wreck the rear of the enemy lines.

Also, some 12 Moria Goblins with bow and spear bring a lot of hurt to rohan and wood elves.

Not a combo I have tried but I have been wanting to mix Kardush and the Undying into a list with a pair of Gundabad Shamans and a bunch of Moria goblins.

I enjoy lobbing 20 arrows at my opponent with my grey company each round until they reach me

I still don't understand why the Grey Company and Gondor Rangers can't have longbows as they are described carrying longbows on the books.

Two had spears in their hands with broad bright heads. Two had great bows, almost of their own height, and great quivers of long green-feathered arrows. All had swords at their sides, and were clad in green and brown of varied hues, as if the better to walk unseen in the glades of Ithilien. Green gauntlets covered their hands, and their faces were hooded and masked with green, except for their eyes....

That would be pretty awesome, but even with str 2 bows, 20 shots each round can do some serious damage. Then again, if you are like me you can also do a whopping 0 dmg. Nothing more painful than rolling 20 dice followed by a moderate damage roll of say 10-15 dice and not roll a single 6 (assuming you are targeting a Def 6 model).

A mounted Boromir of Gondor calling a heroic combat every turn just slaying core troops. It can be devastating ^^.

Sticking my taskmaster within range of a ringwraith and combat hero. A troll chief, Azog, Shagrat, war leader. Witch King supporting the big hero and channelling magic.

Using heroics for free.

At 700-850 points I often get 3-6 more might. Ive had games with like an extra 8. Its insane.

Using monsters to hurl stuff. Even if it isn't the best tactic at a specific point, it's just so dang fun.

Like when I shot 21 arrows from my orc trackers into combat and killed 4 Gundabad orcs for no lose on my side in a single turn! Lol

I once had Vrasku shoot into a combat that included Fimbul and a bunch of elves. Both shots hit, then both hit Fimbul instead of the elves, then both hit him instead of his warg, then both wounded him, then he failed his fate roll and didn't have enough might to prevent it. If I remember the odds correctly, that's like a 1 in 100 chance.
