The following page shows the units that can be enlisted in a battalion and its value in points: Units Point System.

General Info

  • Each name is equivalent to 1 unit of that type.
  • The point value is counted on individual units.
  • During a war there's a maximum of 5 battalions per side.
  • Battalions can have a maximum of 1 Banner Bearer, these units are NOT counted in points system.


  • 1 Gondor Soldier equals 10.0 points, so if I hire a second Gondor Soldier, my battalion will be worth 20 points.
  • If a non-round number is obtained in the calculation of the total value of the points, such as: 1,66 or 8,4222266; you must round down by default.
