The forces of Angmar encounter a mixed force of Elves and Dwarves, somewhere around the Barrow Downs. My battleplan was for the Dwarves in the centre battle to lead the main assault whilst the smaller Dwarf battle on the right would advance in support and the Elves in the left battle would hang back and use their bows to disrupt the enemy in front of them. Mark chose exactly the same battleplan but in reverse, so we were actually a mirror image of each other.
On the other flank the two big units of snaga orcs advanced at first, bringing them into bow range of the elves, then paused, not getting the activation cards they needed to close the gap for there own weapons to reach.
This continued for a couple of turns, allowing the elves to inflict quite heavy damage on the orcs who were unable to reply.
The Angmar army morale dropped to zero, so it was a close fought victory for the Dwarf/Elf alliance.
It was a great game and a lot of fun, with several nail-biting moments. I had tweaked the snaga, previously even large units had been just speed bumps, this time they were more of a nuisance to dispose of. We both suffered with not getting movement activation cards early on when we needed them. Once the centre battles clashed they demanded all out attention and we were constandly using any spare cards to rally units (we could discard an activation card to remove a point of disorder from a unit), so the flanks were ignored.
We are both looking forward to the next game and planning an all-day big battle for sometime next year.
