I went fairly standard Isengard. I initially had Grima in the list, but when I remembered Andrew was using Theoden I cut him for two warg riders instead. It's a little too nasty to have Grima vs Theoden.The mission today is Retrieval which we haven't played often but is a great one!
Side note- Andrew and I recorded this to be released on our Youtube.... but we had some audio issues so had to scrap it. Bummer! But, we'll see you next time!
Closing Thoughts: Andrew played smartly here. The only thing I think he should have done was deploy as far forward as possible; he would have had F5 all across his front line and would not have suffered the withering crossbow fire for as long. That being said, Andrew made great moves and calculated risks- but the dice often went my way. I absolutely LOVE Saruman.
