The first game was against Sebastians elves, lead by Eladan, Elrohir and Erestor. The scenario was To the Death!
I first deplyoed my Knights, and the elves deployed on the other half of the table. I depolyed 6 inches away from them and won priority. I didn't however think about the forest, giving me reduced movement so a lot of models did not make the charge.
My force was 31 models, Sebastian's was 25. The melee had almost equal numbers, so I was at a disadvantage because I had lower fight. And Sebastian rolled sixes upon sixes.
Sebastian tried to re-arrange his sheild-wall before my cavalry charge.
The cavalry has arrived.
The cavalry does not do much, fighting against models with spear support most of the time. And losing priority and getting charged hurts.
The Gondorian force gets heavy casualties, even Faramir goes down to the elven blades.
The end game, a lot of traps and dead men.
I managed to kill Eladan, which was the enemy leader, which gave me 3 victory points. Sebastian won with 10 victory points.
A hard start for me!
