Forth eorlingas

 King Theoden leds the embattled defenders of Helm's Deep in a last do or die sortie against the uruks
 Aragorn and Theoden take the lead
 Uruks & orcs swirl around the causeway
 The remaining half of the Isengardians watch for Gandalf and the relief force
 A firebase is formed
 Since the heroes remain on top of the causeway the bad guys climb up
 Only to be charged
A lucky arrow dismounts Gamling

 Gandalf comes with the first light of the fifth day 
 Gamling is smushed by the troll, while Legolas dies to massed volleys
 Friendly fire! the troll loses two of his three wounds to orc arrows
Battle comes to an end, the relief force has been relieved of their lives and the scant heroes stand against a sea of enemies, victory going to Isengard

Ragnar Ranulfsson

 Brother Ranulffson is the spesh wofs space wolves addition to the kill team. He was a longfang in the rout and brings much needed heavy firepower to the mission. He's an old cantankerous warrior, who openly mocks the Codex much to Escobar's chagrin. He is often the voice of reason that calms down the more reckless impulses of capitain Chadius.
 The deathwatch have the best toys, in this instance a combi heavy bolter-flamer
 No wolf worth his salt would leave the Aett without an axe to bash heads with and a jug of mead

 Ragnar leaves devastation in his wake

 Wolves love to decorate their gear, storied veteran like Ragnar is bedecked with trophies, gilding and wolf pelts, which signify rof his status amongs his brothers instead of more standarized markings
Ragnar thinks that there is no such thing as too many weapons, so he carries an extra axe in battle and has modified his bolter with a razor sharp bayonet

Helm's Deep

 The Hornburg stands against the hordes of Evil
 Mix of orcs, uruks and dunlendings, with the odd troll thrown in

 Aragorn & friends man the deeping wall
 Theoden leds the defence of the main keep
 "Let them come, this fortress will never fall while the men defend it"
 What's going on Legolas?
 As the battle begins the defenders move away from the bombs
 Creeping menace
 Some defenders make a sortie by the postern
 One even jumps into the valley
 Another group exits to the causeway
Ladders! Ladders! 

 The wall is also invested
 A group climbs the causeway with a bomb
 An uruk fanatic is pushed down, dragging and killing lots of his friends
 The blasting charge is almost there
 But Legolas blows it up with cinematic sniping
 As the hordes of Isengard climb up, the orcs form a firebase
 The blasting charge reappears, but fails to expode
 Legolas dies
The rohan player concedes

Brother Pablo

 Pablo Escobar is a stalwart deathwatch sergeant. Coming from the Crimson Fists chapter he has a more balanced mind than other, more headstrong, descendants of Dorn. He is a fervent advocate of the Codex, to the derision of some of his comrades, but under fire you couldn't wish for a cooler head. He takes command of the kill team in Chadius's absence
 A short blade comes in handy during combats

 In his function as subcommander he has an auspex and an advanced communication system
