Bolg v. Jareth, siege scenario Can't Post

What if Bolg were to attack and lay siege to Jareth's labyrinthine fortress home?

Bolg has an army of Goblins that ride Wargs, and is aided by bats. Hates Dwarves with a vengeance. Has an formidable elite bodyguard unit that protects him at all times, presumably, unstoppable except by a certain giant ursine shape-shifter.

Jareth also seems to have many "Goblin" followers (including Dwarves, if you include Hoggle), possibly an army of them, plus can make magical crystal globes (which he can juggle nimbly on his fingertips) for creating illusions, for viewing things or communicating from a distance, or for charming you with a delusion that you're caught up dancing dreamily at a masquerade ball. Can change into an owl and is a master of disguise.

Has a well-defended magical stronghold complete with illusions, riddles, traps, stinking swamps, and Escher-esque floorplans. Also, sings with the voice of glam rock legend and would-be portrayer of Elrond, David Bowie.

Discuss.

Jareth. [In reply to] Can't Post

He also commands Diamond Dogs, Spiders from Mars, Scary Monsters, and Super Creeps. Not to mention all those super villains in his secret identity as The Sovereign, the head of the The Guild of Calamitous Intent.

(And of course in extremis he can call on the aid of his twin sister, Aunty Entity and her fighters of Thunderdome.)

Bolg hasn't a chance, unless he's prettier than Jennifer Connelly, and even then I wouldn't want to be in his slippers.
