For both of us, these were our first games so we kept it to 400 points. As I'd been working on the Fellowship of the Ring models and completed Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, they represented my army list. My opponent took 400 points of Minas Tirith.
We played 3 games in total. It was a very enjoyable session and I was surprised in how quick MESBG was/is to play! Considering the 100+ page rule I feared it might be cumbersome... but it wasn't at all! Can't wait to play more games.
