Thanks for posting this [In reply to] Can't Post

Because I was musing something along the same lines and you posting saves me the trouble! Now, Gondolin was capable of an army of 10000, which seemed enough to at least make a difference in the battle of unnumbered tears so it would be fair to assume that many of the other armies were of a similar number.
Now, to be honest, I think that most realms at the time must have had a large army of reserves. People who would not have been expected to fight all the time as a standing army as there would have been other tasks to do, even as an Elven citizen, but there must have been ways to have a muster in times of crisis or major war so they would have had to have been able to at least wield a weapon!
