Reminds me to read Topics more carefully before i go to bad  :o Somehow missed your post completely. I think i blame the lacking sleep over the week...

Nothing is better than old rulebooks pondering :-*

No worries mate. I've probably done much worse. :)

Glad you got everything you needed rules-wise. I really like your painting, and am looking forward to seeing what you do with this project.  8)

Great minds and all that, eh?  ;)

As the Germans say, "Papier ist geduldig" ("Paper is patient")!

I too keep/kept all my old rulebooks. Not only do I still enjoy looking through them, but I can always carry on playing the game with them regardless of the latest new thing if I want to. Seems like that's a philosophy which is becoming more popular these days, with revivals like Oldhammer and Middlehammer. ;)

With regards to scenarios, it could be worth tracking down some of the old GW BFME supplements for a steer? At least one iteration of the game was for bigger battles (War of the Ring, 2009), and whilst the rules/basing conventions were quite different to WHFB/WAB, the bare bones of the scenarios' set up, victory conditions, etc., could just be ported straight over as-is.

I think i should probably read the LotR again first, then The Book of Lost Tales, then The Complete History of Middle-earth etc ad infinitum!

Oh boy! What have I done?  lol
