    16 Mordor Orcs
    Armed with spears

    16 Uruk-hai
    Hand weapons and shields

    16 Uruk-hai
    Pikes

    The free people had about 100 more points, this was because evil was starting close to terrain that they could use to their advantage

    Legolas and the captain on foot are in shield wall one.
    Gimli is in shield wall 2
    The second captain leads the knights of minas tirith
    2 of the uruk hai captains lead blocks of uruk hai (the left and right blocks) the 3rd captain leads the orcs on the right.
    The Bowmen are positoned so they can shoot at the uruk hai, when the enemy come close the shield wall moves into a tighter formation.

    Turn 1
    Move
    The Good side (me) decided to keep the shield wall defensive position and wait to see what move the orcs made. Gandalf moved forwards 3� he was heading towards the witch king. The Knights of Minas Tirith and captain moved forward next to the ruins. The riders of rohan moved to cover the left flank

    The Blocks of Uruk hai moved straight forward as did the witch king. The unit of orcs on the right moved towards the knights of minas tirith, the orcs on the left moved forwards towards the riders of rohan.

    No shooting was in range

    There was no Combat

    Turn 2
    Move
    Good won priority
    The Shield walls stayed still again and the Knights and riders moved further forwards towards the orcs, they would be in charge range next turn. Evils movement was the same as last turn, the witch king unleashed a black dart at Gandalf but it disapperared just before it hit him due to his extroidinary will power. The Orcs were now close to the riders and knights, priority next turn would be very important.

    Shoot
    Legolas fired 3 shots at the advancing uruk hai, all 3 found their mark, 1 wounded but legolas used a point of might to kill another. The men with bows killed 1 more uruk hai. Evil had no shooting because they had all moved their full distance.
    Combat: again there was no combat

    Turn 3
    Good won priority again
    The Knights of Minas Tirith and the riders of rohan charged the orcs. Gandalf let loose a sorcerous blast at the witch king. The witch king tried to resist but failed, he was blasted back 6� and was forced to use a point of fate to save himself. Legolas moved forward half his move distance, both shield walls
    Moved forward slightly and closed up into a tight formation to receive the uruk hai charge.

    Shoot
    Legolas dropped another Uruk hai. The men of minas tirith could not shoot because they had moved and now had no line of sight.

    Combat
    The Knights lances smashed into the orcs causing 4 casualties, the cpatain put a wound on the uruk hai captain as well. The combat with the riders of rohan did not go so well. All but one riders lost their combat and he killed one orc. Two riders of rohan fell.

    Turn 4
    Evil won priority
    The Uruk hai smashed into the shield walls the witch king couldn’t quite reach Gandalf but tried to fire a black dart at him, the witch king failed to build up enough power. The orcs charged into the knights and riders. In Goods movement Gandalf Charged the witch king and legolas and Gimli were not engaged in combat so moved around to attack a group of Uruk hai that had failed to make it in.

    Shooting
    None

    Combat
    The knights managed to kill a single orc for know loss of their own, with the help of a might point the
    captain killed the uruk hai captain. He riders of rohan killed one orc at the cost of a rider. Legolas was
    being attacked by a captain and 5 Uruk hai he won the combat by using a point of might, he put a
    wound on the captain.
    Gimli was surrounded by 8 Uruk hai but he rolled a 6 and pushed them all back, in addition to this he
    killed 2.
    As the uruk hai smashed against the shield wall it just held but there was now a small gap in it. 3 Uruk
    hai and one man were killed but this was because my captain used a point of might to beat of 2
    opponents and kill one while the rest of the wall had lots of attacks because of spears , In the other
    combat some parts of the shield wall were pushed back while other parts pushed back the uruk hai.
    The Witch king won the combat against Gandalf but failed to wound.


    i'll do more later

    Turn 5
    Evil won priority
    The orcs on both flanks charged into the Knights and riders holding them in place so they could not retreat and charge with lances again. The witch king knew that if he did not kill Gandalf then the white wizard could inflict terrible casualties on the orcs and uruk hai. As he moved towards Gandalf he once more tried to pierce the wizard with a black dart but again he could not build up enough power.
    The Uruk hai pushed forwards into the shield walls, it was essential that they smashed through before the shield wall could reform. Legolas and Gimli found themselves surrounded, Gimli was surrounded by 8 Uruk hai and legolas by 6.
    Some of the archers and spearmen from both groups started to back away from the shield wall and began to form a second wall because the first one looked like it might soon fall.

    Shooting
    Evil had no shooting
    The Bowmen shot at the unengaged uruk hai and brought down 2 pikemen.

    Combat
    The Orcs attacking the knights of Minas Tirith could not cause any casualties despite charging, the knights proved to be far better warriors and killed 2 orcs, the captain killed another. The riders of rohan killed a singlle orc and took heavy losses, it looked like they would only hold out for one more turn before the flank of the shield wall was engaged. Legolas won his combat but could not kill anything. Gimli won his combat and killed 2 Uruk hai. The Warriors which had not backed away held out surprisingly well and took only 2 casualties and killed one uruk hai. Gandalf ducked under the witch kings weapon and swung his staff into its head. The witch king then faded from existence.

    Turn 6
    Good won a much needed priority.
    The knights and remianing riders charged the orcs. The warriors of minas tirith all backed away and formed a new larger shield wall which evil would have a lot of trouble breaking through. Gandalf was now free of the witch king so he directed a sorcerous blast along a line of 8 Uruk hai and he knocked them all down, in addition to this 3 of them were killed.

    Shooting
    Legolas’s bow killed 2 Orcs. The men killed a further 2 uruk hai and one orc.

    Combat
    The knights and the captain’s lances charged into the middle of the orcs, their lances piercing through 4 orcs, the last rider was pulled down by the massive numbers of orcs. When the uruk hai that had not been knocked down hit the newly formed formation they hit a defence far stronger than they had expected and only a single man fell howver because the men had been concentrating on defence so much they could only kill a single uruk hai in return.

    Heavy damage had been caused this turn, the forces of darkness had taken 12 casualties

    Turns 7 – 9
    I will not go through all these individually because they were all very similar.
    The Knights of Minas Tirith kept up the attack on the orcs on the right and gradually wore them away, over 3 turns 9 casualties were caused and a single knight was lost. As the orcs who had beaten the riders marched forward they found themselves facing massed archer fire and as they marched the distance to the shield wall 8 fell to the archers and 2 more to legolas.
    Gandalf repeatedly kept on blasting down uruk hai in sorcerous blasts, killing them as well as stopping them from making a large attack. Gimli kept on rolling sixes and killed 5 Uruk hai in 3 turns while legolas was not so fortunate and took a blow to the head which left him unconcious for the rest of the battle. The uruk hai kept on causing a few casualties but took the same amout in return.

    The Forces of Darkness realised they would not break through and the line started to crumble, the cowardly mordor orcs were the first to flee but even the braver uruk hai did nit last much longer.

    At this point with the evil forces in a state of disaray the other player conceded

    Hope you all like it
    I'll do another one when i play another game

    I think next time i might try some slightly smaller scenarios, or i might do a battle at the black gate (I&#39;ll make up rules because i dont have RotK rulebook) I use army builder for minas tirith stats/points and TTT rules.

    Something like
    Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf and some Minas Tirith Warriors Vs Loads of Orcs and uruk holding out for a set number of turns.
