Uruk-hai vs. Black Numenorians

I got in a small game at the Orland Park GW store as part of a campaign they are trying to run. Glad to get another game in but it was a bloody affair. In a nutshell, he butcherd me but we were playing the escalation (?) scenario with the 5 objectives and he was so busy killing me he forgot to secure objectives.

But the most shocking thing was his Troll. This was my first game against a monster in the new edition rules and MAN are they nasty. The old trick of "feeding" him a grunt doesn't work. He would win, then use the Hurl brutal attack, which meant he threw him into 2-4 other figures, usually killing some of them and definitely killing the guy thrown. I guess, had I been able to isolate and surround him that would have worked. I have always had trouble with how to deal with Trolls and with the new rules, I have even less of an idea of how to thwart them.

One good thing is that this inspires me to get my Cave Troll done for my Moria/Monster list. :twisted:

Yep, by all accounts, Monsters are a game changer in the new rules!
