    In the raid on the westfold the Urukhai must first make their way through the outer farms

    Riders in the fields

    Description, the first of many raiding partys has entered a farm in the westfold, patroling riders are moving to attack them.

    Layout, The game is played on an 4/4 open feild with an outer fence covering a 3/3 square and a farmhouse in the south west corner.

    Deployment: the urukhai deploy no closer then six inches from the outer fence, the riders deploy six inches from the farm house.

    Objectives: The evil player must kill five of the ten noncombatants before they escape off the southern table edge. In order for a noncombatant to leave the house a warrior of rohan must spend one turn at the door to reprisent them waking the family, or they may roll a die to reprisent being woken by the battle din, the result must be a four or higher. Once awake the noncombatants are free to flee the house, they can not leave if the door is blocked.

    Special rules:

    Burning the house: if an urukhai spends one turn in contact with the house he may attempt to set it on fire. Roll a d6, on a result of one nothing happens, on a result of 2-5 the house takes one wound on the batter chart. If a 6 is rolled the house takes two wounds. If batter damage is inflicted the house is considered on fire. Every turn a new roll must be made for the fire if a one is rolled the fire goes out, otherwise the damage is the same as setting the fire. Only two fires may be set on the house, if one goes out a new one may be set. All noncombatants in the house take a 2 strength hit every turn to reprisent the risk of being caught in the fire. If the house is destroyed all remaining noncombabants inside are killed. the house has eight batter points and a defense of 8.

    Hey man i like the campaign you have got going here, have you actually tested all these battles. Awesome ( i'm going for rohan )

    Scud


    I haven't, among other things I lack the propper moddle range. I have a wood fort but no towers, and I don't have enough of either Rohan or Isenguard.
