Can somebody tell me a good tactic with Balrog? I have only ona strategy and i can't creat new. In my strategy I bring up Balrog and no more minions (Gandalf the White will not enter the game), and i attack with Isengard units Lorien (stop Galadriella). Then i will have 8 dices and my enemy only 4. If he going with Aragorn to Minas Tirith, after Lorien I am attacking Gondor. Sorry for my english - I am from Poland and I have only 15 years old.
For me, Balrog is not a "strategy" so much as something I get, or not, depending on the number of muster dice Sauron has, and the Elves have.
If the Galadriel would come out a turn earlier because of the Balrog, then I don't accelerate the process. If, on the other hand, the elves are already at war, then I'm more likely to bring out the Balrog.

The only reason I usually bring out the balrog is if the free peoples has an army marching on Moria. He not only gives them an elite, but also 3 leadership an +2 combat strangth. The card also isn't very good. It makes it too easy for him to be eliminated. he is also not a very good early strategy, as he advances Elves, Dwarves, and North on the Political track. This can come back to haunt you if they manage to muster just once or twice before you attack.
