Battle of the Black Gate March 25th TA 3019 (War of the Ring)

The Battle of the Black Gate also known as the Battle of the Morannon, was the final major battle during the War of the Ring. It resulted in the ultimate defeat of Sauron not by victory on the battlefield, but by the means of the destruction of the One Ring by the hobbit Frodo.

I finally got to play the Battle of the Black Gate. I used some house rules for solo playing in this epic sized battle. It was very fun and challenging. It took about 1 day to make the the table and 2 days to play. 

The ring is tossed in the fire and Gondor wins in this game, but was one turn away from losing the game. Those eagles were very useful in the battle. 

Mordor reinforcements pour in

The weak left flank is held by Dol Amroth

Gondor right flank falls.

The Gondor left flank falls but luckily for Gondor Frodo throws that ring in the fire and the game ends.
