I sincerely hope you enjoyed the battle report and also enjoy this small bonus as sign of appreciation for the time and attention you might have spent following my view of the hobby. Thank you !
A superb game, played with good spirit and given we aren’t proficient with the rules had to live with the mistakes done.
There was a sense of urgency in breaking the Briton resistance and what better way than to cripple their will to stand and fight by cutting down their champions.
the Saxon forces quickly cleared the empty space that separated them from the reduced Briton force. Their Leader, noticing that they would be easily flanked ordered the right wing to loosen the shieldwall and extend the line
There are several different hypothesis of how the battle developed and how the forces operated but all these should be taken into account as a whole, which makes it all more difficult for the hobby enthusiast…
Only news on this side of war-gaming is that we are playing the battle of mount Badon, which supposedly happened in 516 AD between a host of Britons and another score of Saxons somewhere in the South relatively close to the valley of the Thames.
