why turtle to turn 50? i waited 13 turns b4 i went for Rohan and i did great. just for gods pity attack the settlements directly, regardless of casualties. Sarumanīs army is a siege army not a field one. if you go into sieges you completely deny any of rohanīs advantages. they have crappy infantry barley capable of standing man to man with uruk hai, and their cavalry is nearly worthless in sieges, where they dont get to charge. attack and capture, leave a small goblin horde to guard settlement and move on. Isengard is not equipped for attritional warfare. its either a fast win or you going into attrition, nothing good when facing against Rohan In VH/VH with its spawning forces.
