How old is Bilbo? I don't know but every year … my mate Gianfranco … organized in my club a day in which we play with fantasy miniatures instead of the historical ones. It is an occasion to play and to stay all together… ... after two years of Covid lock down.
This time my friends have decided to play a scenario set into the Gondor forests. With the rangers of Ithilien and the Sudrons of the Harad. The scenario was created for four players … two for the Evil and other two for the Good.
The Good can use four heroes: Faramir, captain of Gondor, Madril Captain of Ithilien, Damrod ranger of Ithilien and the Prince of Dol Maroth ... Imrahil.
The Evil can deploy a Mumak, an orc captain, a troll and a large number of orcs.
The Evil wins if it crosses the table (from north to south) with at least 33% of its forces or kills 3 of the 4 heroes. The Good wins if our heroes thwart the plan of the Evil.
The battle begins with the rangers that assault the column of orcs in the woods while Imrail, supported by his knights, attacks the Mumak in the clearing to the north.
Unfortunately the Mumak crashes the Prince. The orcs suffer heavy losses but someone gets out of the table. The Mumak, after the victory, go to south. Faramir's attempts to stop him are in vain. Madril falls in battle struck by the Haradrim's arrows.
For two turns the rangers hit the Mumak with their arrows but the animal is too strong and ... at the end the Evil is the winner.
