The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 212 - Pro patria mori

In case anyone's confused, the Denethor here is not the same guy that appears in Lord of the Rings, which is set about 10,000 years later.

For this scene, I'm imagining that every single elf in Thingol's army fights like Legolas in the Peter Jackson movies, or better - and yet they still lost (or won only a Pyrrhic victory). Though as I mentioned in the comments last time, it's possible that what the peaceful, unwarlike Sindar consider to be unbearably high casualties, later and more determined Elven armies would shrug off as acceptable losses.

Beleg is, let's say, rather over-confident and reckless. Let's hope it doesn't get him into trouble.

Part 212: Pro patria mori

Next time: Part 213: Counting the cost

Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
