The Royal Army of Anarendor has received word that a large horde of orcs has disgorged from the mountains. A defensive force consisting of 2 companies of Royal Infantry, a company of Rangers, and a band of local levies stands ready at the river called the Foaming Flood. Both crossings are guarded. With more troops in reserve, the men of Anarendor are confident.
On the right, the accurate archery of the Rangers cuts down one band of orcs.
Orcs try to cross the river, with support from goblin archers on the far bank.
The Royal Infantry cuts down the orcs, but more appear. (My rules have a horde provision - any horde unit has a chance to respawn and re-enter the battle).
The newly arrived invaders race toward the river.
The remaining Royal Infantry fend off attacks. Those pesky goblin archers now wipe out the Rangers!
The orcs set the village aflame, then attack the remaining infantry.
The combined attacks are too much. The Royal Infantry falls!
- The scenario was taken from One Hour Wargames. It is scenario 19 - Blow from the Rear. The attackers (orcs) must remove all resistance within 6" (I used 1 space) of the river while the defenders must hold on.
- This is game 6 of the Anarendor portion of the 6 by 6 challenge. Achievement unlocked!
