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 beorning matches on fight (though loses to elven blades).
- Will almost always be rolling 3 dice with the insane banner coverage in this LL compared to the banners afforded elves.
- Elves wound beornings on a 5+, Numenoreans on a 4+. Beornings wound both of them on 4+s.
- Further, and this was not clear to me until playing them, they are not diminished by being wounded once, unlike a battle line.
- Vs anything with lower fight, these guys automatically win 42% of the time with 3 dice; and still have a much better chance of out-rolling others (especially when they are out of banner range).
