One thing is for sure: Gimli can be a tank. If you boost him properly and you're able to control the damage, he can kill Nazgul with one hand and hill troll with another. Stats are also good and the threat is high enough accordingly. However i don't play him much mostly 'cause he's in sphere. I just started buying the first AP cycle and simply put, the cards for aren't so good as the others. But I think he will shine thematically in Dwarrowdelf cycle. Very nice artwork. Verdict: 4/5.

If I use Théodred there is usually only few reasons, why to do it: his ability of generating resources, lower threat or his access to . He is the kind of glue hero, who fits only to specific kind of scenarios, where you need to generate a lot of resources as fast as possible. Otherwise there are other better choices, 'cause his stats are really not so good. Same goes for average artwork. verdict: 3/5.

Core set Aragorn is a solid hero, versatile, able to perform 2 action per round (when you have enough resources), with quite good stats. His threat is little bit too high and the ability is not so focused and that's usually the reason why I have doubts to put him in the deck. Sometimes it works, sometimes don't. However still one of the better heroes in the core set. I also like the artwork. Verdict: 4/5

It was a pleasure to use this card during the Morgul Vale quest...

"It was there, on the White Bridge of Minas Morgul where the company of courageous heroes was pursuing the foul enemy of the free peoples of Middle-earth. And with the help of a couple of ... Galadriel's handmaidens ... the final blow to the wretched ghost was dealt."

Oh, well... they were no men, right? Sorry, Eowyn! You're a bit late to the party!
