wtf?.You say that Gondorians would have more battle experience what about the Battle of 5 armies and the Goblin-Dwarf War both were major battles/wars.Better Armour? Does Mythril ring any bells?.and what do you mean Mythril is cheating?
use of proper strategies and what the Dwarves throw themselves into battle and hope for the best?
and as far as crafting go Dwarves have been mining and building in stone since the First Age Gondor/Numenor started sometime in the Second age.The Numenoreans learnt their craft mostly from the Elves where as the Dwarves learnt themselves.
There is an unmistakable thing about Gondor they are in decline and have been since half way through the 3rd age.Without Rohan they would of fell easily to Mordor during the siege of Minas Tirith.
Oh and while Gondorians may have some Numenor blood Dwarves have 100% Dwarf blood.
Dwarves of Iron Hills, if I get it right ,participated there, not all the kindoms... Goblin-Dwarf war - it makes it two. Now, how about all the fights Gondor had agains Rhun, Harad, wainriders, Umbar, Mordor etc. Did all the dwarves had mithril armor? I mean cheating, because its like saying all Gondorians had mithril helmets, were half elf blooded and full decendants of Numenor. Be resonable... No, they did not, they fought, using smart tactics too, yet, Gondor was strategically advanced... Well, yeah dwarves are better craftsmen than Gondorians, but I already said that, however, concidering the description of Numenor kindom - it is hard to claim that they would have been better than Numenorians too, yet, it is possible... Decline = small numbers does not make them retarded... Yes they would probably loose, but not easily, and it still can be questioned... Gondorians have some Numenor blood, but 100% human blood, so what?
ah, so Rohan is best... because they're brave and loyal? Sounds like the worst reason... ever...
Gondor is also brave... Personally, I don't think Rohan is more brave than Gondor, nor do I think Gondor is more brave than Rohan...
if we did set up 5K Rohirrim against 5K Gondorians, I don't really know who would win though.. 'both have a desent chance IMO, especially if Rohan has all riders, but if Gondor makes it all spearmen\archers, Rohan could have a huge disadvantage... 5K Knights could also have troubleled Rohan... In an Gondor vs Rohan, bravery might not have helped much... although hatred might've
And since we're on it, I think dwarves never could've OWNED men... they could win, but own is too extreme...
Well, I like Rohan best lol that is why I think it was the best, yet, definately not the strongest... You, probably, right about bravery; however, due to the come for help reasons - I thought ROhan had more of it... 5K Rohirrim would probably loose
against Gondorian archers combined with spearmen... They would definatelly waste 5K of fool equipted soldiers with swords, not spears though,
5K Knights would probably beat 5K Rohirrim too
but Gondor did not have that many Knights
Men had many different kindoms, which were quiet various in pretty much, well a lot of stuff. My point is average dwarf>average human but average dwarf<gondorian...
End of debate.
LOL Abrams is not the best tank lol)) U loose))
