day 2 - first battle of Nan Curunir

DateSeptember 1 
LocationNan Curunir Gap, Lower slopes of The Methedras
Army of Feldunorst and Elfhelm's EoredLegions of Isengard and Harad
Commanders and leaders
Theoden, Elfhelm, Dwalin, Bofur, EomerThe Ringwraiths
under four Dozen men, about two Dozen of whom are mountedmore than a hundred including 3 trolls
Dwalin Readied his axe, the force was growing nearer now but still he could not make out who they were, only that they were heading towards Heldunorst and for no other reason would an army head throught the Nan Curunir gap then to attack the hold. His men were lining up and two things were going through his mind; Where was Elfhelm and his Eored and the worry that the battle would wake the ents of Fangorn and thus spell death for them all, orc, dwarf and man alike.
Just then a horn sounded and he looked up to see Elfhelm's banner Flying in the wind and two dozen riders, their cloaks covered in snow, riding down from the Nan Curunir spring and then... Great joy! It was the king himself! Theoden was riding at the head of the horsemen, bringing his riders to the help of his vassal hold. Now they stood a chance.
But what was that creature high up in the sky

    The battle was a legendary clash of high and lows from bothe sides and in the end it was one by Eomer, staying defiant and un wounded on the objective from turn two no matter how many urukhai (24 of which loads of them he killed), ringwraiths (he killed all 5), warg riders (killed all 6) and haradrim (quite a few) were thrown at him!
    Some highlights were the dwarf archers taking on the haradrim, uruks and mordor troll with the last archer sheltering for two turns in a log and finally being driven out by a haradrim spear poked through a hole. Also Aragorn, Dwalin, Bofur and Elfhelm fighting their way through the waves of Urukhai and haradrim, taking down a cave troll and loosing both dwrf kings to reach Eomer which they did! Then there was Theoden diving into the midst of easterling and goblin archers and killing them all by the end of the game! Gandalf leaping up a hill and blasting down the mordor troll, killing it! Gloin firing arrows from a bush in the midst of the urukhai! and the Urukhai having an amazing combat in which most dwarves were killed, only to be charged and killed by the rohirrim.
    in the end  Rohirrim victory was inevitable
