We randomised the scenario and would be playing the 'Sacred Ground' mission. A hill was placed in the center, Tom placed a wood to the right and I placed some broken ground to the left.
|The sacred ground|
Mounted Warlord, Three Knights organised into 2 units of 6, One unit of 8 Mounted Sergeants, One unit of 8 Sergeants, One unit of 8 Sergeants with Crossbows
Tom used his Anglo-Danish:
Warlord with Dane-axe, one unit of 4 Huscarles with Dane-axe, two units of 4 Huscarles and three units of 8 Ceorls.
The game started well for the Normans, I established a bastion atop the hill and was driving back any Anglo-Danish troops that ventured near, at one point I was stacking up 36 victory points per turn.Tom eventually secured the rough ground and we both had a unit of Warriors in the woods.
|Normans rush to take the hill|
|Hesitant Saxon dogs|
|Any Saxons coming near the hill were soon driven back|
|Die you Saxon dogs|
|The Saxon Lord goes down|
|More Saxon Scum|
Tom has also done a report from the Anglo-Danish perspective: http://tomstoysoldiers.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/the-battle-of-misgewidere-hill-saga.html but of course it is all Saxon propaganda so should be taken with a pinch of salt.
