Sunday Night – Club Night, the new website is starting to bear fruit and we welcomed 4 new guy’s to the club.
As part of a future project I wanted to give Lord of the Rings rules a try, despite being a gamer for over 20 years I had never played them and was looking for a set of skirmish rules that could accommodate plenty of figures, with heroes and leaders – more of that in future posts.
Thanks to Dane for the lend of the figures.
The scenario was a simple one, a homestead in the hinterland was attacked by a Goblin and Orc war band with a view to stealing the sheep herd….. the valiant defenders had to hold on and protect their live stock.
The farm and surrounding countryside before the Goblin horde descend.
The defenders rush to the southern tree line as the Green mass attack, archery fire proved to be in effective, resulting in very few casualties on both sides, the troll can be seen at the bottom right, which was to cause so many problems.
To the North Orc’s skirt the walled compound looking to gain entry to the farm.
In the center of the village the Rohan engage the Orc’s. The Captain of the guard killed several of the Orc attackers but they were unable to stem the tide and stop the Orc’s breaking into the village.
The rules flowed really well, but will need a few tweaks to fit with the project I have in mind, all in all a good evenings entertainment.
