Upcoming family tournament

For details see these two posts in my brother's blog:
The rules and points: The armies we are using: (I'm Harondor (Gondor) and Harad)

My brother came up with an idea of having a tournament, so we're coming up with a good and evil army each, at 250 points each (or close to), then have four battles, pitting each of the four armies against the other, with a series of hero 'oaths' (goals to achieve to gain points) and a number of things that can happen during a game earning points to that player. At the end of the four battles, the person with the most tournament points is the victor! Sounds like fun!

I'm still painting up some spearmen for my Harad entry, but here's a photo of my Gondor seletion for the tournament. I still haven't based the two heroes properly yet (lots of other painting at the moment) but I managed to paint up a Warrior of Numenor, which I use as a Captain (hero) for my Gondor forces.

Prince Isanmar of Harondor, and his retinue.

The southern realms of Gondor fall under assault by the Men of the South time and time again. Prince Isanmar of Harondor travels the lands of Free Men, searching for recruits to bolster Gondor’s southern realms. Along the way, his loyal retinue protects him from all manner of dangers – but when pressed, enemies will find that the Prince is no stranger to the ways of war!

(245 points Good Army)

1 x King of Men (Prince Isanmar of Harondor) with heavy armour and shield (Boromir figure)
1 x Captain of Minas Tirith (Captain of Harondor) with shield (Warrior of Numenor figure)

8 x Warriors of Minas Tirith with Spears and Shields (Isanmar’s Bodyguards)
