Hundreds of Years after the Elven running-dog-lackeys of the Valar aided in the betrayal of the proud workers paradise of Carn Dum, the spirit of the revolution has not died. Every decade more Elves slink over the sea. King Elessar has died. Even the Dwarves have all found a very deep hole, under the Misty Mountains, and look set to make it deeper. Workers and Peasants of Middle Earth, the time is now. Our agents have made their way from the Red Fortress Ministry of Truth. We are ready to show the flailing men of the South the Light of the New Shadow and our glorious Revolution. Every giant ... presupposes a dwarf, every genius a hidebound philistine.... The first are too great for this world, and so they are thrown out. But the latter strike root in it and remain.... Now small and petty men rule the Reunited Kingdom and the Shadow shall rise once more.
To the matter at hand - cooler heads have prevailed and our brave heroes have withdrawn to make their stand on the slopes to the south of the battlefield. Let's make the Elves come to us. Rumours spread after the battle by traitors and class-enemies to the effect that we feared the Rivendell Guard are patently false.
As the Elves lurched forward in despair, scattered arrows fell Heurenor. Our answer was an accurate volley of Uruk crossbow fire from the hill behind. I am pleased to report there were now Elven survivors and we were able to withdraw as Victors.
Well that was a blast. My guys were Gondor Miniatures using the Fallen Realms list to represent rebels swayed by the Shadow Cult in the Fourth Age. So no Nazgul and I chose Queen Beruthiel to be the General. Andy was using the Elven Noldor List I wrote. Of course we also used the houserules. So those Elves were incredibly hard to take down but also not as numerous as my guys. The mission was Maelstrom with seize the prize. And apologies: The Red Fortress Ministry of Truth has got a bit out of practice.
