Battlegrounds today to try out our 800 point lists for the upcoming finale of the To War! Escalation tournament series. I squared off against my good buddy Eric (the one who got me into this game!) and he was running Azog and a whole host of hunter orcs.
I forget Eric's exact list but he had:
Azog and the White warg with a bunch of hunter orcs.
Fimbul the Hunter and some hunter orcs
Yazneg leading a bunch of Fell Wargs
Narzug with a bunch of hunter orcs.
I believe his list was 42 models or so.
The mission was Fog of War.
- Erestor kills Yazneg.
- In the middle, Azog clobbers Glorfindel leaving him with no fate and just 1 wound remaining.
- Eric breaks and lots of orcs run away to courage... but one Warg stays in his terrain piece.
- We roll a 2 on our first "does the game continue?" roll and it comes to a close.
Boromir is an awesome might battery. I didn't get him into combat until the very end when he charged off to slay some orcs... but he ended the game with no might. It was nice freeing up Glorfindel to save his might, as all of my moves were called with Boromir. I was maybe a bit too cautious with him, however, I assumed correctly that he was Eric's target so keeping him fully away from Azog was a good play on my part!
