last left our Norman lord, Guy de Fountainbleu, he was high tailing it back to his stronghold after a crushing defeat. Confident in defending his home turf, his massed what was left of his men, and faced down Inaar the Redhanded.
His tenats were less confident and left town.
lieutenant (me) had roughly the same.
As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I've run these two forces several times and they've traded blows pretty evenly, so I feel they pretty evenly matched.
What was to follow was another complete beating for the Normans.
It started Guy not being able to motivate his men. After the last thrashing I can understand. Even with the house rule of at least being to move one unit, we still got a late start.
In the end, the Normans may have broken one unit of the vikings, where we were systematically beaten to a pulp. I'm making just a few tweaks to the Norman lists, but it won't change Inaar wintering in Guy's keep.
In the meantime, Centaurs for Dragon Rampant!
