Morgoth Unleashes his Army!!

Suddenly, the Gates to Angband slam shut and Gwindor and his men pass from the Elven Army's view! Thangorodrim belches flame and smoke as countless orcs begin to pour out of numerous holes in the ground on either side of the Gates. Fingon's Army attempts to form a cohesive battle line to oppose the hordes!!
On the right flank (Elven Army), the men of Brethil (slightly left of center) are charged by the orcs, while Hurin and Huor  (center) move forward to support...
On the left, tragedy strikes as Cirdan is shot down by hundreds of orc arrows (and yes I know there is no real note of him being there, but I chose to have him command the Falas contingent in person), while the Elves of Falas and the Green Elves fight desperately...
The orcs continuing to rise from their pits in an attempt to cut Fingon off from his lands to the west (right)...
Three Green Elves are fighting an incredible defense (Lower left of center, standing alone after slaying numerous orcs!). They will show up further in the narration...
King Fingon, Hurin and Huor have withdrawn a small number of their men to the west, while the remainder of the army is locked in deadly combat (inc I might add those three Green Elves)...
One is cut off and surrounded, but he continues his fight!
In the center, Haldir (center) and his men from Brethil fight on with some of the men of Dor-lomin...
On the southern end of the battlefield, hordes of orcs are outflanking Fingon's Army...(oh, ignore the movement trays I use to move so many orcs!)
One of the Green Elves finally goes down after a tremendous stand, but the remaining two (upper right) fight on!
Those two Green Elves (just below center) destroy more orcs while they are being outflanked to the north...
The fighting intensifies on this portion of the field as numerous orcs and elves perish...
As more and more fighters go down, Haldir (top left of photo in red cape) is finally brought low by countless orcs and their own captains...
With Haldir gone along with many of his troops, men from For-lomin and Brethil become surrounded in their final struggle...
The last few Falas Elves (and those two Green Elves) are cut off (lower left) as well as their allies from Brethil and Dor-lomin (upper left). King Fingon, Beleg, Mablung, Hurin, and Huor have retreated with what is left of their army (upper right), pursued by ever more orcs...
Three Elves from Falas, and those two Green Elves, are all that remain on the northern flank...
Only a handful of men still stand...
The Army of Fingon forms what appears to be their final line (top center) in an attempt to protect their homes beyond the mountain pass (top left center)...
to be continued...
