Elves were the first army I wanted to get for GW's awesome War of the Ring (WOTR) game. That is, until I got a hold of a copy of the rules (thanks Stephen!) and read up on their list. The Elven list was a big disappointment - Firstly, it was a mish-mash catch-all that kludged the Sindarin, Noldor and Elves of Mirkwood together. For the years that people were still heavily playing WOTR, almost every post by a starting Elven player began with their desire to theme their army so that at least it made more sense. Secondly, Elves are horribly over costed for what they can achieve in WOTR. I actually got started with the highly cost effective (we're not talking Mordor here, but still) Minas Tirith list and the gulf created by the mis-costings was immediately evident in every game I played vs the Elves. There was one combo - a kind of bunker that used a font of might, Epic Shots, spells, and Radagast to prevent charges - but something as simple as 'Heroic Charge' (let alone the other possibilities) make that something that will work for an Elven player once. Then not again. My first solution was to come up with some houserules to help balance the game better - and they do at least make them playable. However, they did this without actually doing anything with the mish mash Elven list and so the original problem remained. After seeing the Hobbit Movie trailers, I knew I had to make a Noldor list. It would be much easier to have everything laid out with proper statlines and full explanations of any new rules, right there with the list itself.
The Noldor list is below, comments welcome. Obviously this is an unofficial list designed to be used with Games Workshop's WOTR rules.
