6mm Wargaming



Fourth battle - Dagor Bragollach (The Battle of Sudden Flame)

Introduction

After four centuries of long peace, Morgoth began to strike back. He issued great rivers of flame from Thangorodin, which devoured the plains of Ard-galen. He then sent forth huge armies led by Gothmog and Glaurung, and they roamed most of Upper Beleriand for many months. Many Elven and human settlements and towers were destroyed and the siege was finally broken. During this Fingolfin rode to Angband and challenged Morgoth to a duel. Although he wounded Morgoth, Fingolfin was slain by Grond and failed in his valiant attempt to stop Morgoth. This has been split into two main battles since these raids carried on for many months throughout Beleriand. The first battle took place at the Fen of Serech where Barahirs relieving force of Edain came to the rescue of Finrod, who was under attack from the Orcs. The second battle is based on the main attack against by a large and powerful force from Morgoth led by a fully-grown Glaurung and could be similar to one of the many battles fought during this time.
