Amon Sul (take 4)

Ok this is the 4th go at this scenario the last 3 time good has won hands down!

The terrain is the same as in the last fights so no starting pic, The rats, sorry, Hobbits deploy within 3″ of the center, that puts Frodo (the Brave) 3 steps up the stair with Sam in front of him and Merry on his left, somehow that leaves Pippin out in front 🙂

Turn One.



All of the Hobbits pick up stones and Frodo and Sam move up the stairs, Merry and Pippin move to block the foot of the stairs.


All but one of the Nazgul pass their Courage test!

All Nazgul attempt to cast ‘Compel’ on Frodo, two succeed but are resisted by him.

Turn 2.

Evil wins priority.

Start Turn Two

The Nazgul again attempt to ‘Compel’ Frodo this time the 4th attempt succeeds and Frodo puts on the ring and all of the Nazgul rush into combat with Merry and Pippin.

The Hobbits.

Frodo passes his Courage test and removes the ring and all 3 remaining Hobbits move up the stair and throw their stones at the Witch King without Effect. Aragron fails to arrive.

Nazgul turn 7
Nazgul turn 7










Sam used his point of Might to win his combat and push back the Nazgul 3″ with the other Nazgul making way, Frodo on the other hand had completely run out of luck again loosing the combat and with nowhere to go took two attacks one stricking home removing his last wound – now at this point I was a little unsure if his two remaining Might points could be used to avoid the wound, by my reading not, but I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and made the roll – he still died!

So with a huge lidless eye graduly rising in the east at last evil has triumphed!
