Game two of our League saw me playing Chris' Breaking of the Fellowship LL. Chris is the man behind the curtain for the league and an awesome opponent- even if he likes all the BS hero LLs (Black Riders, Vanquishers of the Necromancer... but I enjoy suffering it because Chris is awesome!)
As usual, we randomly determined 3 scenarios: Clash by Moonlight, Hold Ground, and Breakthrough. Chris Vetoed Clash by Moonlight (my Throwing Spears are absolute monsters in that!), and I vetoed Hold Ground as it is just a big furball in the center that I was likely to lose.
So, Breakthrough it was!
RIDERS OF THEODEN LEGENDARY LEGION
- Theoden with Armored Horse & Shield
- 4x Royal Guard with Horse & Throwing Spears
- Eomer with Armored Horse, Shield, & Throwing Spears
- 4x Riders of Rohan with throwing spears
- Gamling with Horse and Royal Standard
- 2x Royal Guard with Horse & Throwing Spears
- Dernhelm with Throwing Spears
- 1x Rider of Rohan
Rohan is all on the left while Dernhelm and her rider are center-right.
|Really dig Chris' paint job on these guys.|
Thus with 4 from the deep objective, 2 from the central one, Rohan ended the game with 6 total VPs. The Fellowship lost two fights total, and lost one model (sweet baby Peregrin Took). They managed to break me for 1, Hold a center objective for 2, and kill my leader for 2 more earning a very narrow 6-5 for Rohan.
