Rivendell vs Mordor in Domination at 500 points

Rivendell and Mordor vie for control of a once beautiful valley now reduced to ruin by constant war! Gil-Galad himself leads the elf forces and squares up against the Witch King of Angmar and some turncoat Numenoreans


  • Gil-Galad, High King with Shield and Horse
    • 6x High-Elf Warriors with Shields
    • 6x High-Elf Warriors with Bows and Spears
    • 1x High-Elf Warrior with Banner, Shield, and Spear
  • Cirdan the Shipwright
    • 2x High-Elf Warriors with Shields
    • 2x High-Elf Warriors with Bows and Spears
    • 2x High-Elf Warriors with Spears and Shields
I don't recall the exact Mordor list but it was Witch King on Horse with the Crown and a Black Numenorean Marshall on horse with shield and lance. Then 6 black Numenoreans, a Troll, a Morannon with shield and banner and a smattering of Morannons with some combo of spears and shields.

The forces deploy right on top of each other! It's gonna be a slug match right from the start.

Rivendell forces leave a Gil-Galad sized hole in the line

The Witch King hides from elf arrows, directing his dark magic at the elves from afar.

The lines smash in! Cirdan weaves magic to assist the elves as Gil-Galad bravely charges the troll.

Several rounds of combat go back and forth with a Black Dart taking out Gil-Galad's horse and the Witch King directing transfixes at the Elven king.

Orc forces begin pushing outwards for objectives. Elf Archers pull back to try to cover them, and their shots are true! (Seriously I rolled SO MANY 6s with my archers...) Gil Galad fells the Troll before turning his attention to the Black Numenorean Marshal.

The elves give better than they get and the scales start tipping in their favor.

The Witch King keeps slinging compels and transfixes at Gil-Galad but has to redirect his attention to an objective as the Mordor forces near breaking

This archer dropped 2 orcs in a row, and then unhorsed the Witch King while holding an objective. Truly a hero of the Eldar.

The Witch King unhorsed and unchallenged holds an objective as the game comes to a close.

In the end, Rivendell managed to score 2 clear and 1 contested objectives for 5 points and broke the Mordor army for 1 more to a total of 6. Mordor holds one objective marker, scoring 2. Leaving the final tally at 6-2 for Rivendell.

Tabletop Admiral MESBG Army Builder now Live!

Many of you who have frequented this blog and checked out some of my battle reports may have noticed just how nice my army lists looked! This is all thanks to Andrew, the developer of Tabletop Admiral. Many moons ago he worked on a modular system for his list builder and I volunteered to be the steward of the MESBG data- tirelessly click-clacking away to get your favorite profiles digitized! This builder is AWESOME. I've been using even the earliest alpha versions of it for well over a year and nothing else comes close. Love it to pieces! IF YOU COME ACROSS BUGS PLEASE E-MAIL ME DIRECTLY AT The text below the cut is from Andrew's original announcement on Reddit, and details how to use the builder!

Mordor vs the Beornings LL in Destroy the Supplies at 650.

After my previous defeat at the hands of Connor's Dwarves , I was not looking forward to this matchup! The bears are, some of the boogeymen of MESBG and my "not-so-great" Beast was going to be no match for them! Here we go!

The game room overhaul

After a few years, it was time for a total game room overhaul. I had the space trying to pull triple duty with a couch/TV space, my office, and the game room. Frankly, it was feeling too cramped, looking too cluttered, and the TV was barely seeing any use. So, with the support of my fiancee (6 weeks till the big day! It's a big part of what's been keeping me so busy, dear readers) I did a complete overhaul of the game room.
