Fellowship of the Ring : Dragon Rampant
Behind on Blogs again ! must try harder. We thought we would try Dragon Rampant with our LOTR figures. After our previous test with DR I was not that impressed....this battle changed everything...... Our scenario had the full fellowship attempting to get across the battlefield to the entrance of Moria marked by a statue. Each of the Heros had his own stats, (either as Elite or heavy Infantry with appropriate special rules, the only one we might tweek was Legolas who just seemed a bit slow on the day ?) with the Hobbits effectively as two tokens to be protected at all cost. They were up against a mass of Orcs and Uruk-hai coming on from all corners. (see also Hobby Horse Blog) having completed this the photos look a bit fuzzy, sorry I think I may have made a loading or uploading error somewhere.
The game was close and felt balanced despite the big difference in numbers, this is perhaps the biggest advantage with DR allowing us to have a fun battle which was close to the end, I did find myself quoting the film a lot during the battle. I have since tried some similar exploits and will blog them soon.......I am already thinking of other options such as a mines of Moria adventure....... just need some more Goblins I think.
