Even though they aren't superb, I've been really enjoying seeing the Grey Company on the table lately. With my new Three Hunters, and recently completed Isengard, Andrew took the army of the white hand and we set about playing a match! Andrew veto'd Contest of Champions and I veto'd Control the Battlefield, leaving us with To the Death.
Finally, the lines clash! Man, Grima is really cramping my heroic combat style!
Andrew scores 2 VPs for having a banner standing, 3 VPs for breaking the Grey Company, 3 VPs for killing Aragorn, and 3 VPs for quartering me (In hindsight we probably should have played this out as he was a bit closer and I did have a bit of might left... but with Saruman running free and just 3 heroes left it would've been an outside chance. Still, these 3 may have swung to me but it wouldn't have changed the game outcme).
I score 3 VPs for breaking Isengard. See above, where it could have possibly swung to 6.
Closing Thoughts: Honestly, this was a fantastically fun game that really could've swung either way! The rangers are tough to use, and had Grima not been right in the center of my force I would've been marching and shooting the whole time and really delaying us getting into combat. I really did enjoy having so much might and so many heroes; even being outnumbered. I kinda want to run them more and really get a feel for how to get the most out of them. Well played to Andrew; he kept the pressure on me and used Saruman expertly. He never let Legolas get a shot on his horse, and really prioritized his spells. Great game of MESBG!
