“Are you frightened? Not nearly frightened enough. I know what hunts you."
Aragorn, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings
With a full afternoon of gaming and only a short time left to have a fight (we (Sam, Tom and I) had just had 3 battles at 350 points) we decided to do a hero only 200 point 1 v 1 v 1 battle:
1. Sam with Beorn
2. Thomas with Aragorn
3. Me with Legolas (cloak and armour) and Thranduil
Hope you enjoy!
|Straight out of the blocks, Beorn changes to his bear form and Sam moves him forward|
|Legolas and Thranduil next move half forward|
(move and shoot, move and shoot son)
|Tom placed Aragorn in the ruins and looked to take a pot shot at Beorn,|
who already had him in his sights
|Legolas and Thranduil both target the 'were-bear',|
but fail to hit
|Aragorn and Beorn lock into combat, two mighty warriors...|
|Whilst my, 'not so brave' elves look on through the door way...|
|...and shoot at the bear, still nothing|
|Brave, brave, brave sir Robin... erm Aragorn loses the fight and burns fate to stay alive, |
the ladder and the ruins are his escape
|Legolas and Thranduil back away, the bear is coming for them next!|
|Aragorn moves into the corner, while Beorn corners him,|
trapped Aragorn is slain
|The father and son elven pair, still believe move and shoot will prevail,|
but not with Beorn it won't! not a single wound from bow fire!
|Thranduil calls channeled Nature Wraith, but Beorn, |
uses fate and saves the knock down and potential wounds,
Both Legolas and Beorn call Heroic strike.... Leggy wins and we roll to fight...
|The Elves burn all their might, but manage to kill the were-bear,|
no wounds on the 'not-so-brave' father and son duo
|The Champions of the Hero Arena!|
Legolas and Thranduil
