6mm Wargaming



Second Battle - Dagor-nuin-Giliath (The Battle-under-Stars)

Introduction

Morgoth became aware of the return of the Noldor and decided to attack before they became too established. He sent forth a force that moved through the passes and assaulted the Noldor on the shores of Lake Mithrim. Although caught unawares the Noldor were victorious as the Orcs were no match for them in combat. The Noldor pursued the Orcs to Angband, but Feanor got ahead of his main body and became isolated. Morgoth then issued another host led by Balrogs who attacked the Noldor and a great battle began.

During this battle Feanor was slain by Gothmog, Captain of the Balrogs and the Noldor victory was incomplete. This battle is divided into two parts the first where the Noldor are attacked while camped by the Shore of Mithrim, and the second battle as Feanor led an attack against the survivors, in front of Angband, and was in turn, attacked by a host issued from Thangorodim.

This scenario has been adapted for Fantasy Rules! 3 by Chipco.
