Fingolfin readily allowed himself to be led by Feanor. I do not have the exact quote in front of me, but I believe he said something along the lines of "let no new grief divide, henceforth you lead...

I have not checked thoroughly, so perhaps someone may have said this, but again, if time allowed, the use of pitfalls would be effective. Also, although gruesome, a wall of human bodies ( :eek:...

Sounds good to me ;)

In all sincerity, I like the idea of a choke point, not only to prevent being flanked, but also to allow for one spearman to hold off many wargs, if the passage was narrow...

Excuse me?

Anguirel, if you can point out where I said "getting that nasty ol' Thingol out of the way would have been a blessing?", I will give you everything in my bank account. Understand that conflict does...

I cannot find a quote at the moment, but off the top of my head I believe Gandalf stated that NOT EVEN Glorfindel and Aragorn could withstand the Ringwraiths, which would be a testament to their...

Many believe that Feanor would have fought with Thingol, myself included. However, I do not believe that he would have hastened the defeat of the Noldor. I believe that he would have united and...

Valthalion

Valthalion lowered his head and sighed. How could he tell Snaveling the full truth? He had built his life around honor and bravery, and for anyone to think otherwise, especially Snaveling, would be...

Before I comment on this, I would like to commend Felagund for his excellent posts. Welcome to the Downs!

First, I want to say that we need to remember that the discussion of battle formation is...

You know, Felagund, at first I could not believe what I was reading, that any elf could defeat a Vala. But I have to admit, your argument did sway me some. Fingolfin was not the equal of Feanor and...

That is a good point, but with a few dozen Uruk-Hai to move one, it shouldn't be a problem. If the orcs could react very quickly, they could plant several spears in the ground in a line, and then...

Actually, according to the hobbit, wargs are afraid of fire, because that is precisely what Gandalf uses to kill several wolves and wargs.

yes, but the catapults do not need to be aimed, as you wouldnt be aiming at a specific target, both rather a mass of horseman. And trust me, as one who has studied such matter extensively, it doesnt...

Feanor and Diplomacy

Feanor, by sheer force of will, could unite all the elves under his banner, except for Thingol. Both are egomaniacs and power mongers who are more interested in advancing themselves than the people...

On the contrary, I believe his fiery genius would have spurred him on. Keep in mind that Feanor was not a suicidal, homicidal elf consumed with war. He was a elf of great subtlety of hand, and,...

Val was still reeling over the news of Snaveling's ancestry, when he learned that Aman was his granddaughter! Out of sheer courtesy, Valthalion rose to bow to her, but Aman stopped him. In truth,...

Wargs are much more fierce than horses, it is in their every nature (they're wolfish and eat meat!), so i don't think that the same tactics as a horse charge would apply here.

Very true mormegil, but perhaps even a premature war would not have been a grim defeat if Feanor, most skilled of the Elves, had prepared them.

Actually, that made a good deal of sense, and I do see a parallel. Good Job!!! Also, what does everyone think about the use of siege weapons (i.e. catapults) to disrupt such a charge?
