Last night,after a delay of weeks due to bad weather,illness and lots of Rum(!) we had a game involving Brian's newly painted Dark Age Irish against my Vikings,and what an interesting game it turned out to be.
Paul was immediately attacked by Graham holding the Irish left,while I desperately tried to form a shield wall,but I was being "peppered" by arrows and threatened by wild hairy(?) Irishmen armed with all manner of weapons-what more could Dave throw at me????
Bloody hell!!-who let the dogs out,woof,woof,woof!!!-somebody yelled SIT! but the Vikings mis-heard and promptly S--T themselves!!
Two shots of Paul and Graham's tussle-the fights went on for most of the game,neither side really gaining an advantage.
Two shots of my flank,with Dave piling the pressure on,only the intervention of my CinC saved the day,and \I actually killed Dave's commander,but his troops mustn't have liked him much,because they didn't run away,and continued the fight!!
Now that's more like it-the Vikings have formed a good line,and with Paul eventually winning on his flank,the outcome is in no doubt-a Viking victory!!
One last shot,showing the state of play-a good game,although a bit more research to be done on how the Irish actually fought,and how good they were at organising themselves-over to you Brian!!-we won't be playing next Sunday as York show is on,and there's money to be spent!!
