Sorry BB, I did forget to post your roll. Above post edited. And Istril's attack edited too.
The spearman attacks Herewaeld once again, hoping to stop his attacker before he himself is bested. Unfortunately for him, his strength is spent and the spear tip is swatted away be Herewaeld's shield. The two axemen turn their attention toward Istril, for the moment forgetting the Rohirrim. The first hits her in the chest, a flash of pain searing down her ribcage. The second misses, cursing under his breath.

Bill, apologies, just saw this post. My notifications have pretty much stopped working!
Also, Istril did spend Hope for the great success - I think you already edited the post, but I wasn't certain.
Torwin draws his sword and charges the Dunlendings with a loud cry, "For Rohan!"
Forward stance, attack Dunlending on Hereweald, use bonus battle die.
Invoke Ominous Blessing on an Eye. If a G is achieved the Horsetailed helm grants a bonus die, which I'll pass to him.

I'm only slightly lost, my fault :)
Hereweald smiles, "Well aren't you a sight for sore eyes!" He presses forward now, hoping to end it. He presses, shield and sword, hacking with more vigor and force, leaving himself open a bit but hopes to just end it now.
Let's Forward Stance, and cut down one of the nearly dead guys. Spend a Hope if it would finish someone off.

Also do a 'Roll with It" if I'm hit in return. I can't remember what that's called! Sorry. I need to get back into the swing.

"Eh let him go, he might lead us to the others!" Hereweald slumps against a tree to catch his breath, "Go, I'll catch up. They went that way and had the lady with them."

He spends a few moment checking his wounds, hoping they aren't really that bad before he joins in the chase.

"After him," says Torwin, who thinks that catching the man would be valuable, if it helps the company maintain surprise with the remaining Dunlendings.
Running fast to try to keep him from escaping...

Istril follows behind Torwin, sparing only a glance and a few brief words for Hereweard. "I am glad you are still alive!"

"Me Too!"

The Rohirrim hunter pushes off the tree after a breath and chases after everyone, sword and shield in hand.

Okay, so chasing down the dunlendings. I will make individual athletic rolls for the 3 of you to see if you can catch up with the escaping guy. If any of you succeed, then you can grab him and interrogate him. Otherwise he slips into the woods and we do a prolonged action to track them down. TN will be 18 as he knows these woods and you do not.
Torwin - Athletics
Rolled:
Feat Die: 5*
Success Die: 5,2,1
Totaling: 13

Herewaeld - Athletics
Rolled:
Feat Die: 5*
Success Die: 2,3,1
Totaling: 11

Istril - Athletics
Rolled:
Feat Die: 8*
Success Die: 5,5
Totaling: 18
Your company has no time to pause and rest ans the last of the remaining Dunlendings dashes off into the wood. He knows the trees well and quickly vanishes. Torwin and Herewaeld race off in different directions trying to find him befor he is lost. It is Istril though who sees the gimmer of steel off in the distance and with remarkable agility and speed, catches up to the man and tackles him to the ground, her dagger pressed against his throat in case he chooses to struggle. The man gives up and lays down his weapons.
