Battle for Moria by Tulikoura Battle for Moria by Tulikoura
The expedition arrived to Kheled-zâram, which was also called Mirrormere. It didn't take too long for dwarves to notice that orcs were dwelling in Moria - it was expected, and dwarves were prepared to fight.

Soldiers launched an attack to the East-gate, and there was a fight in the dale of Nanduhirion; many orcs were slain in the bright sun. Dwarves drove out the surprised orcs from the Great Gate, and soon first guardrooms and halls were secured.

Among the casualties was Flói, a chieftain slayer who was killed by an arrow. Before entering deeper to the halls, Flói was buried under grass near Mirrormere.

With all orcs either dead or escaped, the expedition settled in the Twenty-first Hall of North End, which was above the East-gate; air was good there because shafts were clear, and any entrance could easily be watched.

I like how it reminds me of those medieval era art. Awesome work sir, I can't wait to see what other battles you'll draw. Perhaps one with the easterlings?

Thank you! Hehe, I'm glad you like this one, personally I think this turned out pretty well. This was one of the key images I wanted to draw when I thought about this serie.

Feels odd when someone thanks me for posting an illustration, really ;)
