Which army do you think is the best? The original thread was tossed out in the archive, so I thought I should start a new one. I personally think Mordor’s army was the strongest, largest and toughest army in all of Middle Earth. The soldiers were commanded with fear and hate, making them more powerful and more likely to do what you tell them. Also, Mordor’s army has much more diversity, with trolls, orcs, men, mumakil, those funky dragon things the Nazgul rode and Uruks. What could be stronger?

I think the army of Ar-Pharazon that made Sauron surrender to him, and which subsequently went on to attack Valinor was the best. It was majestic, huge and powerful. I think Sauron’s army was good also. So was the Army of the Dead.

ah....so many choices...........I would have to go with Ar-Pharazon. Or the host of the Valar when they marched against Morgoth

The strongest army in my opinion would the the Host of Valinor in the War of Wrath. There was Eonwe who led the Host against the forces of Melko, Earendil in Vingilot aided by Thorondor and his flying army and the Valar.

Well, as the others have said, it has to be (hands-down) the Host of Valinor. They were unstoppable! But then of course in the Book of Lost Tales there is that mention (or more like, war) of an army of hundreds of Balrogs and Dragons and Orcs and evil things. That would be a pretty strong army, of course it wasn’t put in the final copy, but I sometimes wonder if The Master would have put it in there last minute before he died. We will never know.

The original thread was tossed out in the archive, so I thought I should start a new one. Really? I don’t suppose you saw one of the threads at the top of this forum saying NO SURVEYS (among other things) allowed in this forum? However, if the admins haven’t stopped you, I suppose I shouldn’t attack you. This idea was VERY thoroughly "discussed", if you can call it that, before the archiving, and I see no reason why it should be started again, as Stiff has said, the answer being hands-down) the Host of Valinor. No need for spamming or point-harvesting, really.

Topic was already thoroughly discussed with some evidence provided, and recently at that, here. Without discussion, this thread is verging on being naught more than an opinion thread which is not allowed. Should any feel the need to truly discuss the topic, feel free to open another thread. But for now, thread closed.
