Hi everyone!
The One Ring disappeared for some two month - at least in Italy - I'm glad it's back again.

I'm currently making the last corrections and general controls, the 2.0 army list will be available very soon, hopefully in a few days.

For the list of battles, Kinsman is right about some scenarios better working with 5000 points or so. The problem is, hardly people really likes to play so huge games. So, as a general rule I'd rather prefer smaller battles; but may be a few exceptions might be done.
We'll see. There is a lot of work still to do and perhaps a specific topic would be a better way for dealing with that argument.

Very well, we'll start the core of the discussion from now onwards, for I'm going to share my War of the Silmarlils 2.0 scenario files.

Please, have all of you remember this is a draft. A long draft, may be, and a good one, I really hope, but with still much to do.

I worked upon it long time and after deep bibliografical research.The armies and general spirit of the game are based upon the Quenta Silmarillion overall, but of course upon the Narn-i-hin-Hùrin, as well as upon many other writings (the Book of Lost tales, Of Tuor and his Coming to Gondolin, and others).

Armies, heroes ans special scenario rules are now to be discussed and playtested. I hope I may rely upon your help, at laeast as much you relied upon my efforts, for the stronger the sinergy, the better the final result - for the satisfaction of all of us.

As the argument is very large and complex, it will be splitted in more than one topic:

- in a first topic we'll discuss only about the specific scenario rules;

- a second topic will treat the Forces of Light;

- a third one will treat the Forces of Shadow;

- further topics will be opened later to discuss optional rules, battle scenarios and other.

Topics will be named: "War of the Silmarils - Topic #"

I give a special thank to Gimli52, who helped me very much into developing this 2.0 draft.

I'm still in awe of the work you guys have put into this Silmarillion supplement.

I apologize that I have been absent these past several months, but now that I have some time during this Christmas time, I am starting to get painting again, and that means more Silmarillion painted elves!

I will be posting pictures of Nargothrond elves soon in my WIP thread.

Well, after much hesitation (because it will be hard a job), and much playtesting, in the end I decided to work upon a final version of the WotS game system with quite different graphics and many photos of suggested figurines and painting for the armies.

It will take time, hopefully it will be worth it.

I'll be in need of much than a lot of photos, so I'll have to use much what's available on the Internet, including this site itself; so I take the opportunity to invite those who do not want to see their own works on my rules, to let me know right now (here below or with a private message).
In any case, of all the images used I will give the name of the author or of the rights holder.

Here is a preview of the cover draft. The photo is temporary.

So, I started looking around and filling some of the boxes. I have to say that although there is virtually no house that has been specifically occupied by the First Era (exception: Mithril), the general offering of fantasy figurines is large enough to cover almost all the needs.
Inevitably remain some holes, and to resolve them, I hope someone can help me.

Let's start with the Elves.
Since I've thoroughly explored GW, Iron Forge, Reaper, Dark Sword and Mithril catalogs, I still can not find suitable figurines for the roles of:

- Feanor & sons (I only found a nice Curufin);
- Fingon;
- Dogs of Valinor and Huan (maybe some dogs in 54 mm?);
- Luthien;
- Elf light cavalry (hooded cloak and bow, like the Mirkwood GW types).

Any suggestions?
