Here is what I've came up with. What do you think?

Numenor – “Seven stars, and seven stones, and one White Tree” – When a named hero from this list is nominated as your general/leader he gains the Palantir Special Rule from Saruman’s profile in the Fallen Realms source book, though “evil player” is to be read as ‘controlling player’.

Minas Tirith – “The Lords of Gondor have returned” – Warriors from the Minis Tirith army list can reroll failed courage tests within 12” of a named hero when that hero has been nominated the general/leader.

The Fiefdoms – “Captains of the outlands” – Each of the fiefs (Morthond, Lamedon, Lossanarch, and Dol Amroth) of Gondor, their heroes and warriors together, are treated as a separate army for the purposes of determining their breaking point.

Rohan – “Death! Death! Death!” In the turns following the death of the armies general/leader all models in the army that charge as a result of participating in a heroic move or fight gain plus one to their strength and count as being in range of a banner for the remainder of the turn.

The Misty Mountains –(current army bonus ought to be in their rules anyway) – “The Eagles are coming” – Each model is treated as its own warband for the purposes of deployment and in scenarios were a die must be rolled to place each warband, or for reinforcements, the controlling player of this army may reroll each of those dice once, regardless of the result.

Ok I might sound negative, but I dont mean it to be. Part of it is the fact GW's bonuses came out before yours. I will work under the assumption you mean to replace them.

Numenor: I like it a lot!
Gondor: With or without GW's bonus, they have so much bodyguard I dont see it as necessary. Its thematic and nice, but an army having a chance to roll two courage checks is something I probably wouldnt wanna see.
Fiefdoms: Im lost on the meaning.
Rohan: This is worse than Gw's bonus. If you mean to replace it, then nah. If you add to it, then its OK, but once per game is not going to change much or be noticeable.
Misty Mountains: I love the deploying each eagle as a warband. I love the re roll. Awesome. Eagles come through and wreck people in the movies EVERY time. In the game, they're terrible as one faction and dont often have a chance.


I thought another bonus(separate from all the others mentioned) would be this:

At the beginning of a turn, before priority: The controlling player may attempt to declare 'The Eagles have arrived'. On a roll of four plus, you may deploy all the eagles in your army to any board edge over 12" from your opponents models. If you deploy your eagles in this manner they must all be in one warband.

That may just be a scenario though for fun not a special rule. But I think it would be interesting. Kind of like Goblin mercenaries.
