Escape from the Prancing Pony

Barliman Butterbur, busy with his customers at the Prancing Pony.

Strider and the Hobbits leave the inn early in the moring with the hope of avoiding trouble.

But trouble already lays ahead. Here's Bill Ferny waiting for them at his house in the outskirst of Bree .

As soon as they leave Bree they meet with a pair of Squint-Eyed Southerners, outlands from Dunland at the service of Saruman, and called by Bill Ferny.

The Hobbits run for the forest to hide in there whereas Strider stands in the way and looses an arrow but misses. The Orcs, not seeing the Hobbits, charge Strider who easily finishes them off.

But at the end of the road appears their leader, a champion and tough fighter. Strider wastes no time and charges, dispatching him outright. Meanwhile the Hobbits stay save in the forest.

Bill Ferny swears and attacks Strider but he is no rival for the Ranger.

Some Orcs coming out from the woods spot the Hobbits and charge them, but they are too far and only one of them reaches Strider.

Striders turns back and slays the evil creature whereas the Hobbits courageously charge at the other two Orcs. They get lucky and can kill them, with only Pippin suffering a wound. But more Orcs are approaching down the way!

Strider charges at them and all Hobbits, except Pippin who is wounded, do the same after him. Strider kills one Orc and then charges another and puts out it as well.

However, the little Hobbits result wounded by the only Orc fighting them, who defends his life like a cornered wild creature.

Finally, Aragorn gets rid of the last Orc before more of them come, and they swiftly leave Bree and head for Rivendell.




  1. Looks good Javier! Three cheers for the heroes!


  2. A fitting end for Bill Ferny! The floor plans for Bree look great, do you mind me asking where they are from?

    1. They are from the D&D Dungeon Tiles Reincarnated city box. You get a castle, sewers and parts of a city. I also have D&D Essentials Dungeon Tiles Master Set, The Dungeon. They are cheap and with those two I got covered most of my needs. They are meant for 25mm but they work even better for 1/72.
