Battle of Dale

   The other day we played the first Battle LotR of the year. The Battle of Dale. The Good forces consisted of Dwarves and Men. They tried to protect the city of Dale from the invasion of the Evil Mordor forces. For our game the objective was to hold for three turns the Goddess statue of the ruined temple in the center of the city. 
   The defending Good forces were:
1 Dwarf Captain with throwing axes
8 Iron Guards and 4 Dwarf Warriors
Drár and 12 Dwarf Rangers with longbow
Cirion and 12 Osgiliath Veterans
Boromir and 12 Warriors of Minas Tirith
   The total points of Good force: 943
   The attacking Evil was represented by:
2 Morannon Captains and 24 Morannon warriors
12 Orc Trackers
1 Troll
1 Orc Captain with shield and warg
12 Warg riders
Shagrat with shield and 17 Mordor Uruk Hai
   Totally 946 Evil points.
   The battlefield was the ruins of Dale.
