Comments

I like the idea of pitting the orcs against the elves, should make for an interesting battle. I have to say that the bad guys do seem to have quite an advantage in terms of forces having those cave trolls in there and far superior numbers, i don't have the books w/ me to check points values atm so they may work out the same but at a first glance it seems a tad unbalanced.

i c is that ur hobby kaliska ,lol, comentating peoples scenario's; soz 4 that wise wanderer! i think that u should make lists a bit clearer for ur "participants" otherwise 4 someone as ambitious as u im glad 2 c u still battle with mortals and freaks u should put sum pics if pos,by the way could u tell me how i could put my pic of "lurking in the woods" in its scenario? ungoliant

The numbers are equal. The elves have the advantage of the woods. A high elven battle line is difficult to break. The elven player does need to formulate a strategy to keep from getting destoryed. The most obvious is to set up the elves in a battle line with wood elves on the flanks to fire bows, then as the line begins to break fall back into the forrest and mop up the survivors.
