Another Arthurian bash with To The Strongest


On Tuesday we had another go at using To The Strongest using our Arthurian collections.

Myself Greg and Ben used the Saxons while Martin and Quinton used the forces of Britannia. If I recall correctly the lists were:

Saxons:

  • Heroic General, three Cavalry, one Hero, one Light Infantry with javelins
  • Heroic General, one Veteran Warriors, two Warriors, one Hero, one Light Infantry with slings
  • Heroic General, one Veteran Warriors, two Warriors, one Hero, one Light Infantry with slings
  • Heroic General, four Warriors, one Hero, one Light Infantry with javelins



Britannia:

  • Heroic General, two Cavalry, two Axillary, one Light Infantry with bows
  • Heroic General, three Warriors
  • Heroic General, four Javelinmen
  • General, two Light Cavalry with javelins, two Light Infantry with bows, one Light Infantry with Javelins
We had a great game again, the two lines clashed and a titanic Dark Age struggle ensued. The Britannia forces prevailed on their right where the command of light troops outflanked and destroyed piecemeal the Saxons before them. However on their left the Saxons had the upper hand.

In one calamitous turn the Saxon General attempted to rally his Veteran Warriors, drew an Ace so used his re-draw. Ace again!

We eventually ran out of time, but the Saxons were on the back foot having lost more of their Victory Medals than their opposition.

Next week we are giving it another go using Medieval forces.

I forgot my camera so these snaps were taken using my phone camera.
