Supply Run (LOTR:SBG Batte Companies)

Vung the Mighty caught word that his nemesis Kilir the Dwarf was escorting a supply train of clydesdales packing Dwarven Ale to the nearby seige. Vung always wanted to see what the big deal was with these Dwarf Ales so he set up an ambush along the road.

Turn 1 to Turn 3: Vung sneaks around the hill and tells the archers to hold their positions in the ruined fort. The Dwarfs plod forward. Bowfire is ineffective these turns. (Typical of the Goblins - sigh) Vung finally gets to the centre of the road. "You shall not pass! Beardy Beer-breath! Gnaaahh!!"

Turn 4 & 5: Vung heroically charges a Khazad Guard! He distracts the gold plated stiff while one of the new guys stabs him with a spear. A great melee ensues wherein Rigash and Grulo go down in the fight to Dwarven axes. Vung himself is brained with "whirlin'" Nurlin's 2 handed axe. Vung bravely plays dead for the rest of the fight.

Turn 6 & 7: Gurug the archer tries to sneal a packhorse away while the archers charge into the melee and some Goblin spearment try an attack from the rear of the pack train. Brogdush spears another annoying axeman, but it's not Nurlin! (we HATE that guy). Prong, Kaalo and Harbag get whacked to the ground.

Turn 8 to 10: We Need Luck!! One of our spearmen goes down. Huung gets shortened by another dang Khazad Guard. Kig goes splat. Brogdush gets bashed. Fung the bowman looks around and realises he's the last goblin standing and bolts back to the mountain.

Every goblin in the warband is defeated and we didn't even get to touch an ale keg!
Luckily most of our warband manage to sneak away or stumble off the field. There are no reductions in the band for the next scenario.
