Rivendell vs Mordor game, Andrew and I ran it back with Rivendell vs Angmar; both of us trying out some newer models and approaches. I wanted a Rivendell Knight focused list and Andrew wanted a heavy monster presence. I think this made for a heck of a great game! We rolled up "Breakthrough" for the scenario.
I won the table edge roll off and went for the edge with slightly more wooded areas. I also rolled Elrond's Foresight points and got a 6... pretty sweet.
Gulavhar is a proxy but we remember how huge the actual model is when it comes to checking LOS.

At the end, Rivendell won a 10-3 victory over the forces of evil. 4 points for 2 objectives in the center at 2 VP each. 1 point for posessing the rear most objective. 4 points for completely controlling the far objective, and 1 point for breaking Angmar.
Angmar scores 3 points. 2 for holding a central objective, and 1 for breaking Rivendell.
Thoughts: Man, another amazing game! My Knights didn't perform super well here, but I probably could've done more with them. I have lots of cav experience from Rohan, but Andrew did a good job of gutting them early. 4 words though. Wrath. Of. The. Bruinen. My word, with Lindir I probably got it off 4 times. It absolutely is what allowed me to kill Gulavhar reliably, as well as the cave troll. I haven't used Elrond a TON, but I am definitely a believer now.
Gulavhar is SCARY, but I gotta say.... the Witch King on a Fell Beast doesn't do it for me. Still, I think Andrew played them both very smart and a few dice differently and this could've ended in a much worse spot for Rivendell.
