 Angmar Easy wins
When fighting under the Angmar faction, build a few Mills. Then, build a Hall Of The Kings Men. Train a two to four Dark Rangers. Build the Armory and upgrade it to level 2. Then, research the Ice Arrows for an extra boost in damage. The rangers will kill your enemies very quickly. Beware of Cavalry units. Train some Thrall Masters with the Spearmen and use them to defend the rangers until you can build up a large enough army and defeat your enemy.
 Temporary Shield
Casting "Soul Freeze" on your own units acts as a temporary shield.
