This was another game in our ongoing very slightly historical Medieval campaign. The current claimant to the throne has had a serious of successes and was poised to win another. However, I brought from our usual set up. Normally everyone gets a core 3 units: 1 Dismounted knight unit, 1 Longbowmen unit and 1 Man-at-arms/billmen unit. And then they take turns picking units, ala dodgeball, until everyone has 6. But, this time, the core remained, but the other 3 units were randomly dealt. I ended up with a very "shooty" heavy team.
Forces size each other up.
Duke Horace leads his men forward.
Sir Lionel admires himself in the reflection from his helmet.
Another great game. It looked like Roderick's forces were going to completely roll over Horace (thanks in no small part to my shooty units). But, then Horace's boys made a comeback and tied it up. It came down to a difference of one unit, with Roderick's forces just making the Victory Point limit.
