Forest Guardian

We return to Middle Earth with the angriest elves around!  Back when I was playing Lord of the Rings on a regular basis, I created the Knights of the Blood Rose.

These were elves who refused to leave Middle Earth to the race of Men.  They had been there far too long to simply shuffle off to the Grey Havens and leave it all behind.

They were also heavily engaged in warfare with the Easterlings.

Typical LOTR tournaments of the time had you bringing both a Good and Evil army, which you would play three times each during the tournament.  This was actually a very fun format, and I enjoyed it very much!

My favorite tournament of all time was a six game LOTR bash that saw my Elves and eagles as Good, and my Easterling/Khandish alliance as my Evil.

There are a number of articles on the creation of both armies, and the army board "Fortress Falls".

I am still adding to all of it, putting in spiders and Morghul Knights on the evil side, with more eagles on the good side.
