Scenario One the ford.   Leave a comment

The warriors of dale marched toward the ford. Fearing the scenario time limit the easterlings heroic marched at the double towards the ford. The cavalry pushed forward onto the ford but lost priority and the heroic move dice off . This meant that King Brand and his host could charge forward and defend the crossing against them and cancel their charge.

Meanwhile the dragon priest failed to cast his Channelled Fury spell. The easterling archers however fared well against the opposing archers keeping the advancing infantry and cavalry safe.

The archers of dale fared badly even with their strengthened bows.

The forces clashed and the cataphracts took heavy casualties. Next turn however the infantry pushed forward through any gaps where the cavalry , once again unable to charge had been slain.

Once Rutabi the easterling general got into the fray it was hard for the men of dale to hold out. King Brand fell to the dark blade of the easterling champion and the battle was done.

Victory to the easterling forces who crossed the river as Brand and his men retreated towards Erebor.
