I had received the MESBG Battle Companies book for this past Christmas, and I think we are going to give it a try soon. I had a difficult time finally settling on what company I wanted to use, though I had narrowed it down to either Arnor or The Last Alliance. Arnor is probably my favorite army, though Numenor is a close second. I wish both Arnor and TLA had a little more variety in troop selection or reinforcements, but I want to give it a shot. It sounds like a fun concept, so I'm looking forward to it. Don't know what I will be facing yet, but I'm sure it will be enjoyable.
In other news, I started painting some of my Mirkwood Rangers. I have one almost done, maybe can post some pictures later tonight.
