Battle for Sunday 6th August 2017.

In an unprecedented move away from my "normal" way of reporting our battles,I thought I would show some photo's before we fight this battle on Sunday.

Top photo is the scenario,and bottom is the initial lay-out of the troops,as the "boys" will see it on Sunday.

This is the "Crusader" right flank,facing........................

The Norman left flank!!!

The Normans debouching from the Castle-light troops to the right,heavies to the left!-the village is manned by peasants(very keen,but not very good!)

The "tail-end" of the Crusader column,formed and ready to fight!

A close-up of the Crusader right flank cavalry(they have a look of "El Cid" Spanish to me!)
I hope these photographs have whetted your appetite for Sunday's game.

    1. Hi Tradgardmastare,'fraid not,too far for a one day show,and can't justify staying overnight!!-let us know how it goes,thanks

  2. That looks fantastic, just the sort of set up I longed for as a youngster, castles and loads of knights.Pictures bring home just how big your gaming table is.

    1. Hi MIke,I just hope I never grow up!!What could be better than Knights and Castles?
      We play on a 10 by 6 foot table,so it gives a fair bit of room to manoeuvre-the rest of the "boys" want me to extend the table up to 12 feet!!!
