The Wizard and the Burglar – Hobbit SBG Battle Report

  1. I don’t know if the GT rules are different, but the Goodside usually starts with priority on the first turn in most narrative scenarios..not that I have forgotten about that ever (and not that it really matters).
    The set up of this scenario is pretty interesting, though it did appear that Gandalf was NOT doing his heavy lifting…wrong time to have an off day!
    Pretty miniatures and great read. I hope the next scenario will be a great climax. 🙂

    1. If I remember correctly and I know I didn’t mention it in my write up but this scenario gives evil the priority because they caught Gandalf and Bilbo off guard. I don’t think it is entirely necessary and there’s no reason good couldn’t start with priority to give them a little help.

      Gandalf in combat was underwhelming to say the least! I’m surprised he only has one attack when almost all of the dwarves have two. I’d be willing to bet that would make a huge difference in this scenario against the goblins.

      Regardless of that, I appreciate your kind words as always and for stopping by! It keeps me motivated know others are enjoying these articles 😀


  2. Thanks for the shout out. 🙂 I think actually in this scenario Gandalf sorcerous blasting while surrounded by Goblins is actually quite thematic, it actually seems a nice special rule in this scenario.

    Anyway, as I mentioned on the forum, nice photos and nice battle report! Really awesome paint jobs.

    1. You’re very welcome and thank you for the kind words! When I played the scenario, I thought sorcerous blast seemed pretty powerful but it seemed cool so I went with it. As soon as you mentioned it on One Ring, I was like that seems much more fair and right. I think the reality is that this is a tough scenario for the good side to win. I’ll give it another try one of these days and see how it goes 🙂 Thanks for reading and I look forward to your next battle report!
