Hello, I am currently working on a strategy board game that takes place at the end of the third age. For this I need some estimated strengths of the different armies. I have divided the two sides into different factions, here with some estimated numbers, that aren't that useful alone for a strategy game, because one elf is significantly stronger than one badly equipped orc: 1500 Rivendell Elves 4000 Lorien Elves 3000 Elves of Mirkwood 3000 Dwarves (Erebor) 2000 Dwarves (Iron hills) 20000 Gondor 13000 Rohan ? Eriador (Dunedain) 4000 Dale 15000 Saruman 10000 Rhûn ? Harad (? Khand) ? Minas Morgul 15000 Dol Guldur/Orcs of the misty mountains ? Main Army of Mordor It is really difficult to make a fair strategy game, because in reality Saurons forces outnumbered the good guys ~2:1. (Although perhaps this doesn't translate to the actual strength of the armies) If you have any suggestions for the strengths of the different factions, if you know the numbers of any that are still missing in this list or if you have some better numbers, I would be very glad if you can help me. PS. I am no Tolkien expert, but please don't say something like "You can't just say army a is "stronger" than army b, it has a lot to do with position, leadership skills, structures etc..." I know that, but it is a board game, I try to make it at accurate as possible while still being a fun and not too complex game.
