Face-off 2013 1st round the Cirith Ungol Vs the Fiefdoms

Cirith Ungol have numbers a banner and an extra might point to their advantage, however will that make up for the fact, that the gondorians are better fighters, and have better armour. Duinhur has a task on his hand, since if the Gondorians are broken he is as good as an orc captain to rally his men, which could prove to be his downfall...

Cirith Ungol Vs the Fiefdoms (Storm the Camp)


Gorbag issues his minions forth from their camp
while Duinhur holds his ground
One of Duinhur's arrows finds an orc heart
Closing in
The orcs attack the hedge and wall
Duinhur claims another orc
Gorbag smashes his blade through the Gondorian's helm,
One orc manages to defeat the defending the hedge

then clambers over it
The orcs attack the defences again
Duinhur rushes to the spear-orc,
who levels his spear to find a chink in the Gondorian's armour,
Duinhur steps back, grabs the orc's spear and shoves it through his neck
Another Clansman is downed by a nearby orc
Duinhur reorganises his defences
Gorbag guts the knight attacking him(-1might) meanwhile two orcs
attacking the hedge defenders are cleared from the line
Duinhur swigs his spear in an arc across the edge of the hedge
cutting the throats of two orcs who had just lowered their guards(-1might)
The orc force is now broken!
Gorbag rallies his orcs and attacks into a seemingly one-sided melee
Another orc crushed
Duinhur orders another attack on the orcs
Where he claims another kill, and removes the banner bearer
Gorbag rallies the orcs a final time and charges the bright eyed men
Save the orc at the camp who loses heart and flees!
Moving a single Gondorian into this camp would give a victory
The Gondorians take light of this butchering a shield-orc and Duinhur even
manages to wound Gorbag which is then saved by fate(-1fate)
Gorbag has had enough so takes flight!
Giving the Gondorians a major victory!(15-4)

Fiefdoms = 10pts(winning scenario) + 5pts(breaking orc force) = 15
Cirith Ungol = 4pts(losing scenario) = 4

Well the orc gave a good game even though they were thoroughly out-skilled, mostly down to Duinhur's kills from afar that levelled the constituents, the orcs then couldn't handle a force with better fighting skills, higher defence and having a barrier on their side. Banner or no banner.

Next time is Moria Vs Theoden's Host in Take and Hold

Until then, have a merry merry Christmas!
