GOBLIN TOWN - Recover  our weapons and baggage


Continuing the adventures of Callum and the dwarves in Goblin Town.  Callum again designed the layout on a 2x2 foot tile supplied by the Warhammer shop in Edinburgh.  He also allocated the forces.

This time the dwarves are setting off to find the weapons stolen from them by the Goblin King.

The goblins are suffering badly now as the Heroes close in and Dwalin can be spared to batter down the cage door.

Dwalin batters his way in and recovers the weapons and baggage.

The Heroes, led by Thorin start to move off and the Scribe finally sends in a couple of reinforcements,
