About this deal

One other advantage of spear-supporting is that your Fight Value doesn't get halved by a Ringbearer, so Isildur is far more concerned about a random Uruk with a Troll buddy behind him than he is if the Troll has a sword. This is "potentially" a problem, but only if you want cheaper Dunland/Orc models in your list instead of running pure Uruk-Hai - then it's not a problem.

While both Mordor and Barad-Dur (and most of the Legions from Mordor) have access to an Orc Drummer for 30pts, you COULD have +1 model by taking an Orc Drummer with .On the following turn, our massive base size will make it hard for the hero to get around us - and he'll be down at least 1 Might point when we start round two . bases are pretty common for big monsters in MESBG (my beloved Balrog has one, as do Ents, Eagles, Shelob, Gulavhar, the Spider Queen, and Mordor Trolls/Chieftains), but with 6" movement AND a large base size, the typical situation a Mordor Troll will find himself in is that he will a) move towards the enemy line very predictably, b) charge or be charged, and c) be stuck in that general area for the rest of the game. extra points to pick up D8 and swapping the flexibility of Bashing or Stunning (or Feinting) for shielding (or Feinting) might be worth it - though you'll actually pay 5pts more if you get a Drummer Troll variant (and because you swap the shield for the drum, you'll actually have exactly the same stats as a Mordor Drummer Troll .

I've had games where I've been disappointed with these guys, but I've also had games that I've really enjoyed using them (and I've both underestimated them and faced other players who have underestimated them). If these kinds of models are smashing a Mordor Troll instead of the heroes you brought along, you're kind of okay with that, I think . Having double monsters also gives you some very interesting shenanigans, as does having two siege engines that might muck up your opponent's attempts at wrapping around your flanks! First and foremost, they cost an extra 10pts and swap their hand-and-a-half weapon (hammer, club, or sword) for a sword and shield (you can optionally swap the sword for a spear - don't ever do this).This critique is pretty condemning if you ask me - and for a long time, these were the reasons I avoided Mordor Trolls. Thanks to having the Monster keyword (and also depending on how you modeled your Mordor Troll), several options will be available to you.

The critiques we've leveled against them are all true - and in certain list builds, I will happily admit these guys are just not going to do enough for you. he Trolls of Mordor have been bred by Sauron so that they can withstand the light of the sun without turning to stone like other trolls. If paired with the Shadow Lord (outside of Gothmog's Legion, of course), you can REALLY force the issue - and that can only work in your favor. Our second stop is the Army of Gothmog LL, which I believe to be the best list for running double Mordor War Catapults - mostly because everyone else in the list is bad at killing stuff. This multipart, plastic box set allows you to build an Isengard Troll, Mordor Troll or Mordor Troll Drummer.Most opponents will look at this model and say, "Eh, I should deal with first, then I'll get to the Troll. All of these thoughts apply to Mordor Trolls however you field them - now let's turn to the two more specialized cases of Mordor Trolls.
