The Witch King of Angmar


In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl. A great black shape against the fires beyond he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face.

Honestly the Witch King is maybe my favorite UNIT in MESBG and possibly even my favorite model (Or... set of models).
I love how flexible he is! He is decent at combat- especially with the Crown of Morgul atop the Fell Beast. He's also a very sly spellcaster with strong magic and mobile while on horse.

The Fell beast has a bit of a learning curve- knowing when and where to commit took some practice, but eventually I got very comfortable with this unit and it can be quite devastating. Fly is amazing. Once I flew over a Survivors of Laketown army, picked up one of Bards' kids, and chucked her into the ranks with a nasty hurl. Gruesome but... suitably evil.

I've never used the Morgul Blade. Seems... too situational. But the Crown of Morgul on the other hand is an auto-include. His casting is bonkers good!

Tabletop Admiral MESBG Army Builder now Live!

Many of you who have frequented this blog and checked out some of my battle reports may have noticed just how nice my army lists looked! This is all thanks to Andrew, the developer of Tabletop Admiral. Many moons ago he worked on a modular system for his list builder and I volunteered to be the steward of the MESBG data- tirelessly click-clacking away to get your favorite profiles digitized! This builder is AWESOME. I've been using even the earliest alpha versions of it for well over a year and nothing else comes close. Love it to pieces! IF YOU COME ACROSS BUGS PLEASE E-MAIL ME DIRECTLY AT The text below the cut is from Andrew's original announcement on Reddit, and details how to use the builder!

The game room overhaul

After a few years, it was time for a total game room overhaul. I had the space trying to pull triple duty with a couch/TV space, my office, and the game room. Frankly, it was feeling too cramped, looking too cluttered, and the TV was barely seeing any use. So, with the support of my fiancee (6 weeks till the big day! It's a big part of what's been keeping me so busy, dear readers) I did a complete overhaul of the game room.

Minas Tirith vs Mordor in Capture and Control. 800 points.

Finally, the Shadow to the East has been unleashed! As the dark lord Andrew marches his evil forces to war, the Noble and good Gondorians under Steward Steve were ready to stand their ground and take the brunt of the dark forces' initial bid for control of Middle Earth.
