We played the game on my Mordor table. Below is a shot of the table at about the end of turn 1. Faramir and his veterans are over by the tree on the right. The rest of my army is scattered randomly about the board due to the messed up deployment rules of the scenario. My captain of Gondor and about six or eight more figures are just out of the picture to the left of the rangers guarding the lava trench.

You can see the new trees that I recently made. I think they look pretty decent on the table.
After turn 1 I forgot to take any more pictures, but the game progressed pretty evenly until about turn 7 or 8 when I had a pretty good turn of combat and broke Rob's army. The scenario then dictated that the game ended on a die roll of 1 or 2. Which Rob promptly rolled a 2 on the first try. I am pretty happy with how the army performed despite a couple of setbacks. First, Cirion, one of my heroes, kept rolling 1s and 2s and did not come onto the table until turn 6. Yeah, turn 6! Also Rob smartly placed a group of low defense rangers and citadel guard in position to be charged by his cavalry. They all promptly died except for 1 ranger that fought off a cataphract for the entire game.
So a decent game despite a terrible scenario. I look forward to trying to get a few more games in before the tournament.
