Ambush in Ithilien   Leave a comment

Faramir and his rangers set out to ambush the haradrim as they make their way to join forces with the dark lord.

This was a fun scenario that pits two Mumakil and their escort against a strong force of rangers who lie in ambush.

Good set out his forces equally split between the north and south edges with Faramir and the hobbits to the north. The Haradrim need to travel across the board with the Mumakil whilst the escort are free to engage the ambushes.

This was a good way to learn the war beast rules.

In the first turn there was a free ambush attack. This had little effect because the Mumakil have thick hides and the two captains driving them have good courage so avoided a stampede.

More to come….

Can you spot the rangers? I only own one Mumakil so the other is represented by a tray holding the crew.
