Descending Into The Mines (battle report)

Sun Aug 12, 2012 11:37 pm

After some months, Coën and I have finished battle report 2 in our (in progress) series of reports on the War of the Dwarves and the Orcs.

The first battle can be found here: The Battle of the Gladden [working link]

The second battle was featuring Thorin and Frerin leading a scouting party in the mines. It can be found here: Descending Into The Mines [working link].

Most credits should go to Coën for this one, he's done by far the most work on this (I've just writen the background story and my own in-game mistakes).

I hope you enjoy reading!

Any C&C is welcome. :)

Much appreciated. :D You posted a teaser for the next game at the end of the battle report. Does that mean you've already played the 3rd game or was the picture just staged?

The 3rd game hasn't been played yet, no idea when it will either!
The picture does give a bit of an impression of what the forces will be (the picture shows over a third of Fëanor's force, from what I've gathered :P ), although I should have slightly more goblins than those shown to confront the dwarven elites.
The real work will be writing the scenario this time, it will be more like the narrative scenarios from supplements and sourcebooks than the pitched-battle style ones we've done so far. To find a balance, we may even have to play a test game or something.

Thank you for putting the time into making this battle report - it was great to read (and look at the pictures ;) ) and I look forwards to the next one :D
I especially love the painting on Feanor's Whiteshield's :)

Hi guys. Thanks a lot for this, it was well worth the wait. I can see a lot of effort's gone into it, so well done there. And congrats on the board as well, it was great seeing it in use. How did you find it to game on?
