It's been said by a few that I am suffering an unconscious bias for the force of Good, Sorry the Humans... so this posting is for all the fans of the Orcs...
The second campaign game and the forces of Isengard march into the Gap of Rohan....
Krag watched and waited, his Warg scouts had reported the approach of a Rohan foraging party, the humans were hungry and that would be their undoing.
The humans were many in number, with riders and foot troops together with a number of wagons laded with supplies gathered from the surrounding area.
Rohan archers scampered ahead of the humans looking to shield their infantry, Krag sent forward his shooters to pin the skirmishers whilst he signalled his main body.
Krag signalled his musician, who blew on his horn, his Trolls, brutal creatures who strike fear into the hearts of men rushed forwards the trolls drove into the Rohan Riders throwing them from them from their horses and slamming their bodies to the ground, the others fled in manic, the trolls would eat well tonight.
The trolls had carved a path through the human ranks, Krag released his Warg riders they crested the hill seeking to tear into the mass ranks of men who were hemmed in by the mass pikes, all but the old man stood in there way. The sage and his tricks were no match for his mounted warriors he was pushed aside as the rider rode on.
Once again the humans morale was shattered and they abandoned the field to the Orc's. Krag smiled as another region fell to his warriors... On to Helm's Deep where the last of the Rohan had fled.
Another great encounter. it ebbed and flowed. The Elves gave a good account of themselves in the first engagement, the trolls continue to be a thorn in the side of the human forces. For the humans pushing down the left hand flank was a gamble but unfortunately too many troops were unable to bring their combat power to bear and were not able to close with the pike or turn to stop the treat of the trolls who had driven the cavalry off.
Next up the actions shifts to Moria surly the forces of darkness can't win three in a row?
