Agincourt 1415 for Partizan in the Cloud #Partizaninthecloud


My travel plans to the UK this year have been scuppered and I was sad not to be able to attend the Partizan show. But all is not lost I can participate in Partizan in the Cloud #Partizaninthecloud  

Here is a Youtube video of a game that I set up and played earlier this week for the show.


The two forces used were as follows.

English

Henry V, King of England - Attached General (Senior, Heroic, Great Leader)
Two units of Veteran Later Knights on foot
Two units of Veteran Longbowmen

Edward of Norwich, the 2nd Duke of York  - Attached General (Heroic) 
Two units of Veteran Later Knights on foot
One unit of Veteran Longbowmen

Thomas de Camoys, 1st Baron Camoys - Attached General
Four units of Veteran Longbowmen

Sir Thomas Erpingham - Attached General
Four units of Veteran Longbowmen

French

Jean II Le Maingre, Boucicault, the Marshall of France - Attached General (Heroic) 
Five units of  Later Knights on foot

Charles d'Albret, Constable of France - Attached General (Heroic)
Five units of  Later Knights on foot

David, Lord Rambures, Grand Master of Crossbowmen - Attached General (Heroic)
Three units of  Later Knights on foot
Two units of Levy Crossbowmen

Charles, Duke of Orléans - Attached General (Heroic)
Two units of  Later Knights on foot
One unit of Sergeants
One unit of Levy Crossbowmen

Louis, Count of Vendôme - Attached General (Mounted, Heroic)
Three units of mounted Later Knights

Anthony, Comte de Brabant - Attached General (Mounted, Heroic)
Two units of mounted Later Knights

Waleran de Raineval, Comte de Fauquembergue - Attached General (Mounted, Heroic)
Two units of mounted Later Knights

Special rules:
Great leaders are a sort of special senior attached general.  A great leader's exceptional qualities enable him to play two replacement activation cards or to-hit cards in a single turn, rather than the usual one. Great leaders are also exceptional warriors and when wounded, play two injury cards and pick the lowest.  

English archers may perform an arrow storm, drawing three chits for shooting rather than two as a difficult activation if they are shooting at an enemy within range 2, an extra ammunition token is expended. 

To represent the problems caused when the French horse recoiled into their infantry, when mounted men at arms are broken they are subject to the Rampage rule (p.52)  


The unit carrying the Oriflamme can always redraw the chit if they fail to make a charge move. 

The battlefield is a ploughed field, any Men at Arms attempting to move or charge count as a difficult activation. 

And, if you are not bored already, I also created a short video of me setting up the table in our spare bedroom.

    1. Thanks Jeremy, most of them are plastic so I reckon I'll just take the 'throw 'em in a box' technique.
