This time I lost against Llama. See his summary for how the game went. I declated defeat after becoming too tired with playing. Although I lost I still think the dwarfs are too powerful.

I finally had a game of War of the Ring with Llama. For his side of the story follow the link. I played dwarfs and he had the goblins. This was my first ever try at dwarfs and I hardly knew what units I had. However, I have lost against the dwarfs earlier so I know that most of what they bring to the table are incredibly powerful.
I have some pictures to illustrate the battle but they are incredibly crappy, taken with a cell phone without a flash in a dark room. The dwarfs are to the right and the goblins to the left.
Since we played without any terrain or magic the dwarfs really had a chance to shine. I moved up the guys in a tilted line so that my stationary ballista on the right wing could have a clear shot at the dragon and the wargs. I put the Kings champion between my two main bodies so that it was protected from being charged and could charge at will.
The dragon died in the third round, peppered with ballista bolts, and the wargs in the fourth together with most of the goblin archers. After that the main body of the goblins was wrecked and Llama graciously admitted defeat. This strengthen my belief that the dwarfs can hardly be beaten in a simple game. Magic and terrain must be included to level the playing field. It doesn’t matter that the dwarfs are a bit slow with the strength and defense they have.
