Howling Gorge

Scenario Type: Bombing Run
Size: 12 Vs 12
Time Limit: 15 minutes
Victory Conditions: 500 points
Scoring: 75 points for successfully placing a bomb.

Overview

For some time, Dwarf Rangers have watched as the greenskins use the tunnels around Howling Gorge. One large tunnel mouth in particular is a vital thoroughfare for the Orcs and Goblins. If that could be sealed, the ambush would be prevented. The Dwarfs have gathered several barrels of black powder and traveled to the Howling Gorge to close the greenskins’ main tunnel. Upon seeing the Dwarfs arrive with their “boom-powder,” the greenskins realize that they must act quickly. They draw up a hasty plan to turn the tables on the Dwarfs and use their enemies’ black powder kegs to destroy a rock ledge above the road. The resulting avalanche will make the road completely impassable, and the Dwarf forces will be held up for weeks while they dig through, buying the greenskins valuable time to gather reinforcements.

As the Dwarfs enter the high cavern and prepare to do their work, Orcs and Goblins suddenly leap out from the shadows and cave mouths. The battle for Howling Gorge has begun!
 

Order Strategy
 

Initially, your team will have to decide to concentrate on offense or defense, but in the end, it takes a balance of both to succeed. You need to steal the bomb from middle of the map and deposit it at the objective point almost due north Destruction spawn camp. Once you grab one of the black powder barrels, 90 seconds till it detonates, so get moving. The quickest route is taking the bridge and heading straight up the path and around the bend to the left to reach drop-off point. On defense, kill the guy with the bomb so it resets. You have to react quickly to offense or defense in this scenario, depending on who the bomb. Communication is essential.

Destruction Strategy
 

Initially, your team will have to decide to concentrate on offense or
defense, but in the end, it takes a balance of both to succeed. You need to
steal the bomb from the middle of the map and deposit it at the objective point almost due south near the Order spawn camp. Once you grab one of the black powder barrels, you have 90 seconds till it detonates, so get moving. The quickest route is taking the southwest bridge and heading straight up the path and around the bend to the left to reach the drop-off point. On defense, kill the guy with the bomb so it resets. You have to react quickly to offense or defense in this scenario, depending on who has the bomb. Communication is essential.
