When is a siege not a siege?-well as part of my Viking campaign,Barcelona has been betrayed by none other than King Rodrigo of Leon(whose kids Bloodnok had kidnapped!) who has shown the Vikings a old drainage system leading to the centre of Barcelona,for the release of the said kiddywinks!-Bloodnok's troops are attacking the town walls as a "feint" whilst other warriors are entering the town,thus minimising casualties,but still gaining plunder!!-sneaky!!!!
With Barcelona captured,Bloodnok orders a special ship to be built to carry all of the "Loot" he has amassed on his Spanish campaign,before venturing into the Mediterranean sea and starting a new campaign against the Moors! As the Viking fleet approaches the largest of the Balearic islands (Mallorca) they spot a fleet of strange craft approaching them-this is the next battle,a sea battle!!
My concept of the forthcoming sea battle(for which the Vikings were famed!) and a view from the Mooorish side of the table.
Both fleets arranged at the start of what I hope will be a different and entertaining game-I haven't quite worked out yet how I will determine casualties etc. -not wanting to "scupper" the Viking's chances before the campaign gets under way,but not to give them too great an advantage over the Moors.
