Morgal Orcs vs Wookies. Can't Post

I wonder who would win in a field battle between these two battle tested clans. Wookies have power and other things but Orcs likely would outnumber them and have Slave Trolls.

Orcs & Trolls vs Wookies Wink

I would have to go for the Orcs, simply because we never really see the strength of the Wookies in the SW films.

Wookies always seemed more reluctant warriors.

I have to say... [In reply to] Can't Post

...the Orcs.

Never underestimate a Wookie [In reply to] Can't Post

All things being equal, I'd give it to the Wookies. I think you over-estimate the raw strength of the Orcs.

"Darkness beyond blackest pitch, deeper than the deepest night!
King of Darkness, who shines like gold upon the Sea of Chaos.
I call upon thee and swear myself to thee!
Let the fools who stand before me be destroyed by the power you and I possess!"

Orcs have very strong arms. [In reply to] Can't Post

All the better when the Wookies pull them out of their sockets and use them to beat the orcs to death.

Wookies win!

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.

Strength is probably a wash, but Wookies seem to have a more organized, cohesive army so I'll go with them.

As three great Jewels they were in form. But not until the End, when Fanor shall return who perished ere the Sun was made, and sits now in the Halls of Awaiting and comes no more among his kin; not until the Sun passes and the Moon falls, shall it be known of what substance they were made. Like the crystal of diamonds it appeared, and yet was more strong than adamant, so that no violence could mar it or break it within the Kingdom of Arda.
