Four brave souls gathered at Huzzah Hobbies last night to play the Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game (new name). We decided to do a 1000 point battle using a NoVA Open scenario. The goal of the game was to bring a "jewel-bearer" to a forge and "cast it into the fire" for three VPs. Other goals included killing the enemy general, occupying ""diversion" points, and breaking the enemy force.
The Forces of Good consisted of Saruman the Wise and Elendil of Numenor leading an alliance of Men and Dwarves. Arrayed against them was an evil version of Saruman, Saruman of Many Colors (or the White if you are going by the movies) and his horde of Dunlendings and Uruk-Hai, aided by a Troll!
Incidentally the battle was fought on the Trollshaws terrain made by John McConnell of DCHL and will be featured at the NoVA Open. Excellent work, John!
Evil takes priority and advances.
