A simple set up with the Witch King and Boromir facing up to capture a river crossing. With 34 points each it made a reasonable sized battle with enough scale, but we managed to get through in a couple of hours. Once again I didn't take enough photos near the end......will try harder next time😥
After a couple of turns both armies have made it to the bridge, but the two units, Uruk hai and Gondor spearmen don't want to rush in, we had declared the open water as impassible so the troll....more thoughtful than normal can't decide whether to make for the bridge or cross further upstream ? The witch king has Fast moving Warg riders on both flanks but they have the wild charge rule.
A test shot for a new bit of scenic background from the railway shop, if you get the light right it will look ok.
The wargs have charged across the river only to be stopped and then beaten back......
The troll and the Uruk's with swords have also rushed the river. Gondors' finest charge in to push them back. This they do after a couple of turns but they have paid the price....
And the Witch King destroys the final two, the troll has limped back across the river heavily wounded and when he does get back into combat he is easily killed.
It was a very fun game which really swung backwards and forwards several times...my new gamer may now be hooked 😈 and thinking of what they could collect.
