We played a raid on a settlement and used played saxon's v saxons as a test for some of the potential battles that may come up - in this case one side was activiating on the british cards (of course) and then bonuses where only applied when Boar Sutied cards where played etc.
I have designs to build a Late Roman -Romano British Army for Dux and Beyond but for now ill use my vikings as stand in raiders - because I can.
I really really like the Musketeer Miniatures range so watch this space when it comes to late romans!
|The quiet Village that has recently been taken over by a Saxon lord and his men.|
|Out of the mist comes another Saxon lord to challenge the ownership and more importantly steal the animals and other items of worth!|
|My Lord moves his Hearth-guard and warriors up to defend the town.|
|I think the gods decided I had to much of a good thing on Saturday so today my warriors get munched up by Darren's and one ends up with to much shock and flees the fight|
|My Lords Hearthguard move up to try and regain some honor|
|Lots of Insults and cursing and then the fight|
|I come of pretty bad but for a moment push Darren back and force some serious checks on his moral|
|But then the fight gets nasty again and my lads succumb to these furious warriors.|
It was a tough game and was back a forth in the middle as more men got sucked into the fight - I think the cards I had kept me in there allot longer than I could have otherwise. It was allot of fun (I am still hunting for a good camera-so sorry about the photo's).
This Wednesday the campaign kicks off so I shall try and do a campaign summary for my lads as it progresses and then this Saturday its 1088 take two so look out for that report as well!
