Finally, the Shadow to the East has been unleashed! As the dark lord Andrew marches his evil forces to war, the Noble and good Gondorians under Steward Steve were ready to stand their ground and take the brunt of the dark forces' initial bid for control of Middle Earth.
I am honestly pretty excited about this Minas Tirith force! I feel like it can cover a lot of bases. It does feel like magic is a weak spot for it with 7 total will in the whole army... but this is the time to test it!
- Facing 3 spellcasters is rough! Boromir was out of will immediately, and it was sheer luck that had him survive the Witch King's assault.
- The bolt throwers were pretty dope! Granted, I was 100 points deep on them and in the end they killed maybe 6 morannons and the Dark Marshall's horse... but I was also prepared to bolster the lines with another might and 3 more bodies.
- Shield wall paid dividends for me here. In the end I only lost 5 total models.
- I'm looking forward to playing this again!
