The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 265 - Second Battle of Beleriand

The orcs with further to travel will, of course, get there later than the others. But it shouldn't matter, because they massively outnumber the elves...

By my calculations, Fëanor probably has about 10,000 warriors in his army at this point. (How many civilians he has following him is more of a moot point!)

    Of all Fëanor's inventions, it's too bad "military strategy" wasn't among them.

    Lots of real-life generals came up with plans that were no better, and often worse, than his. :)
