Both were trained to be ruthless

Both were told they were the best at fighting


Leonidas runs the Isengard Gauntlet while fighting for Rohan on the Deeping Wall at Helm's Deep with 5 Spartans:

  • A siege ladder with an Uruk-hai Berserker at the top
  • 30 Uruk-hai soldiers


The second part of the Gauntlet takes place at the gate with 10 Spartans:

A battering ram
  • 50 Uruk-hai (a mix of pikesmen and swordsmen)

  • The final part occurs when the breach in the Deeping Wall takes place. Leonidas has 25 Spartans with him:



    • The siege mine
    • 10 Uruk-hai Berserkers
    • 80 Uruk-hai (a mix of swordsmen and pikesmen)


    Neither are holding back. As with the LOTR movie, the defenders at Helm's Deep have one to three hours to prepare. Everyone has their respective equipment. These are based off the movies.

    Stipulations for victory for Sparta is that Leonidas doesn't die and win at least 2 parts of the entire gauntlet.

    Stipulations for victory for Isengard is that the Uruk-hai kill all the Spartans.

    Why do you think Leonidas can even survive the first part of the Gauntlet?

    Aragorn seemed to do it quite nicely. If he doesn't, then Sparta loses one part. What of the other two?

    The best chance they have is scenerio three which plays into their stratagy with the shield defense.  The might take that one, providing they don't split apart too far after the first wave.

    Keep in mind that the Uruk-hai Saruman used to attack Helm's Deep were equipped with low-quality iron armor and weapons due to his impatience to make it a large army.
