Battle for the Eastern Gate   Leave a comment

In our scenario Balin has led a small force through the gate and encounters a small scouting patrol of goblins.

Bruce managed to get one of them into the mines to raise the alarm. However the patrol tried to hold back the powerful dwarven attack and was massacred. Yet Balin was badly wounded in the melee.

When the goblin captain leading the reinforcements failed his courage test and fled the field the other cowardly goblins ran away. This allowed Balin and his guards to pass through deeper into the mines.

Next we played two battles between Gandalf and the Balrog. This ended honours even. Finally we played through two games of the Treachery of Sméagol and Sam was victorious twice!

So in the end a great day of Moria themed strategy battle gaming. Well done to Bruce and his goblins who smashed the hapless foolish dwarves in the main battle of the day!
