SECOND Battle at the White Gate
In our return match Grandad (Mordor) had to break through Callum's (Gondor)
lines with at least 2 warbands at over 50% strength each.
Grandad chose as many warbands as he could with the cheapest points value figures - quantity has a quality all its own! and Callum chose a balanced force of infantry. (we have not mastered the cavalry rules yet).
Grandad's plan was simple - draw the enemy in to the centre and rush past on the flanks to win!
Grandad's centre and left flank engage first led by the Vomitbelly the Expendable (he does not know what "expendable" means)
And the Gondor warbands fall for the trap!
Grandad's warbands in the centre die heroically! Look bottom right a warband is sneaking round the Gondor lines.
Grandad's left flank runs into trouble.
Gondor shouts out, "Victory!" Vomitbelly dies never knowing what "expendable" means!
Only then does Callum realise that a whole warband has flanked him on the left and is racing for the base line and on the right the survivors (exactly 50%) of a warband are sneaking past as well.
Victory to Grandad! (for once)
