I am finalizing my preparations for the Gathering in the Desert. I have painted my army, plus some. I have fifteen copies of my list. I have the rule book, the Legions of Middle Earth book and the Gondor in Flames book. I bought new dice that match my army. This is vital, as all gamers know.
I am finishing up my display base. It is simple but good enough. I'll get pictures with the whole army later. I only have to dull coat five more rangers and that is done too. I just need to come up with a format for a battle report form and pack and I'm done.
I have read battle reports, played practice games and re-read the rule book. I have a hotel reservation and have made arrangements with my friend for the drive. I am ready to do this. One more day of work and then we head to Phoenix.
