Free Peoples-Who is the real Istari?
We decided to do a point battle using a NoVA Open scenario. The goal of the game was to bring a “jewel-bearer” to a forge and “cast it into the fire” for three VPs.
/tg/ – Traditional Games
Other goals included killing the enemy general, occupying “”diversion” points, and breaking the enemy force. Arrayed against them was an evil version of Saruman, Saruman of Many Colors or the White if you are going by the movies and his horde of Peiples and Uruk-Hai, sbb by a Troll!
Evil sends a strong force up the middle with harassing forces to the sides. The left flank has a stronger complement of fighting Dunlendings.
Good deploys a wall of archers on the left, Dwarves hold the center while Elendil and his Numenoreans come right. Saruman the Wise uses his long-range Sorcerous Blast spell to down a Dunlending.
Even more evil models are slaughtered by remarkably effective bow-fire! The troll, immobilized by Saruman the White and fighting 5 dwarves, manages to win the fight! Dunlendings backed by Sbv pikes fair poorly in the center.
Reinforcements head their way, conceding the left to Good. Thrydan Wolfsbane charges Elendil along with his forces. He has ootr shot at killing the Numenorean forces. Dunlendings flood the center.
Thrydan and his warriors go for Elendil again, only to have Saruman the Wise good knock down the combatants with a Sorcerous Blast and save the hero from combat. Saruman the White evil stands by impotently. The troll makes short work of several dwarves, but can’t quite break their line.
The Dunlendings manage to thin our the dwarven center a bit, but sustain heavy casualties. The thin blue and black line holds. Dwarves backed by Numenorean spears are tough! Thrydan gets one last chance to kill Elendil as the king of Numenor struggles to his feet With the Evil troops broken due to heavy casualties, and no chance to kill Elendil any longer, the forces of Evil quit the field!
Saruman the Wise and the forces of Good disperse the evil rabble, who leave bloodied but not destroyed! And who is this imposter Istari? This game was probably won by good at the deployment stage. They had troops in every section set up to counter evil. Evil had the chance to deploy second but did not effectively allocate their resources. Good dictated the pace of the engagement throughout.
Evil did have a few chances to turn the tide of battle by slaying Elendil, but canny use of Saruman the Wise and some rather bad luck on the combat dice ended that faint hope. In the end, evil had lost over half their models, and good had lost perhaps a quarter of theirs.
Little Wars VA: SBG Dunland vs. Free Peoples-Who is the real Istari?
Once again, SBG proves capable of handling a battle involving around models total in quick and exciting fashion. The game took about two hours all told.
