I had envisioned doing a White Council force since I have all of the models and it would be a great excuse to paint them up. After some soul searching (and number crunching) I decided to make it all Elves and to try and make it a family affair of sorts. Galadriel seems a given and Celeborn wouldn't be far behind (I think we know who wears the pants in that relationship). I've always enjoyed the fact that, reading the Lord of the Rings appendices, you realize that Elrond is the son-in-law to Galadriel and thus Arwen is Galadriel's grandaughter. So I had to add them in for that fact alone not to mention that Elrond (and Hugo Weaving) is one of my favorite characters in the movies.
In keeping with the theme I had for the evil force, I decided to base these in the same way (rock bases with dead grass) but replace the snow with flowers. The thought being that the power of the Elves (such as Galadriel in Lothlorien) is able to combat the corrupting effect of Sauron's evil.
This force is going to be feast or famine when it comes to games. Since I don't care much about wins I'm ok with that, I only hope I can give my opponents a challenge before I get whopped. These Elves have a lot of magic and some tough combat characters (Elrond, Celeborn and Glorfindel) so I think they may present a non-traditional challenge both to me and my opponents.
5 months until B3 and I'm already half way done with my good force. I like building small armies!
