Helm's Deep Trouble

Another game in Middle-Earth, using the same rules as last week. This time I sat out and watched on as the brave Orcs and Dunlending freedom fighters tried to storm the nasty strawhead's stronghold of Helm's Deep.

Concentrating on either ends of the rampart and on the keep itself the hero's manage to scale both with their ladders. Being true to the book and not the film there was only one pointy eared nasty to contend with. Both him and the wannabe king were dispatched and the dwarf sent cowering for the glittering caves.

Re-enforcements arrived in the form of Gandalf, a force of Rohir (Erkenbrand) and the Ents\Huorns. Didn't do them much good as the trees were moving too slowly to help, and a group of orcs managed to surround the Rohir and force them away.

There was also the strange site of Graeme's partially painted fleet for Firestorm Armada, having only finished the capital ships of the Aquan fleet, he padded the fleet out using some appropriately shaped soy sauce bottles.
