Mechanicum+militia 2000pts

 The habituals of this blog will remember that several years ago i built a rather blocky reaver titan, when i finished I wasn't convinced with its dorsal armament so yesterday I built him two improved weapon options. A vulcan megabolter (on the left) for dealing with those annoying flyers and a double-barrelled turbolaser for D strength spam.
 As titan class weapons they are quite big
 The megabolter mounted on the reaver
 and the turbolaser

With these changes I've got yet another 2000pts army for the Horus Heresy achieving a 25% rate of completion towards the siege of Terra project. The plan is to mass a total of eight armes to play the siege with: Imperial Fists, Blood Angels, Mechanicum, White Scars for the loyalists and Emperor's Children, Death Guard, World Eaters, Thousand sons for the traitors. Each faction will also have Horus and the (not yet god) Emperor with a unit of bodyguard (Justaerin/Custodes), the objective of the campaign will be obiously to kill either Horus or the Emperor.

 In this scenario Balin has to exit via the gate to win, the goblins have to kill him instead.
 The dwarves advanced in a solid mass
 While the goblins moved to block the gate
 Combat between the two forces ensued without a clear winner

Althought having the lead on casualties inflicted the dwarf player decided to cnecede since he fund the gameplay boring and that his army had a overwhelming numerical disadvantadge. So I don't think that we'll play anymore games of LOTR unless it is with similar armies that is. I want to play at least the fellowship of the ring so I'll have to tailor some lists having that in mind.
Well what do you want I didn't write this scenario, Ward and Cavatore did!

Moria campaign scenario 2: Battle for the dwarrowdelf

 Our next battle takes place deep below the mountains: in a pillared hall Dubruz the goblin king faces Balin across a deep chasm! Whoever reduces the enemy at one quarter of its strength wins!

 The dwarfs are led by Balin (red shield in the center) and two captains Floi (yellow) and Nali (white shield)
 The chasm divides the battlefield, it can be crossed by a narrow bridge or jumped (albeit at some risk -1s dies-)
 The goblins have the numercial superiority and nefarious creatures such as one cave troll, goblin shamans and foul engines like the goblin drum.
 In the flanks of the goblin force are deployed two groups of archers 
  The goblins are led by their king, Dubruz (with a fur cloak in front of the drummers)
 The two forces move towards the bridge
 First blood to the evil side, a kazad guard killed by an arrow
 The dwarfs begin to cross the bridge, but their lead warriors are out of range from the banners's bonuses! The first dwarf is killed.
 Two dwarves jump trough the chasm, one falls to his death
 And the other is quickly surrounded

 However a dwarf actually maneges to defeat the troll and wound it even!

 More dwarves jump trough and are surrounded

 The brave dwarf in the bridge is quickly surrounded and killed
 A lone dwarf survives thanks to his armour in the right

 With most of his crossing forces defeated the dwarf player decides for a change of tactic
 Heroic victory of the surrounded dwarf who then jumped trough the chasm and left the goblins behind in an poper adventurous manner
 With the bridge clear the goblins pour in
 But the thing goes awry, here the first loss of the evil side so far in the battle
 Balin kills the troll

 Perhaps it wasn't so good an idea to cross that bridge
However the dwarf player concedes as he doesn't believe that his forces will hold the next turns
