|Campaign position with English forces trying to escape to their fleet located in the top right-hand corner of the map.|
I am using rules which are best described as a mash-up of Lion Rampant rule mechanisms and One-Hour Wargame combat mechanisms, then adjusted to play on a 6 inch gridded table.
The game had both forces facing off across the river with three crossing points. A stone bridge in the centre and a ford and wooden bridge on either flank. I only have a few photos from this game due to a combination of low battery and a couple of blurred photos.
|English knights move to counter the flanking French knights as they cross at the ford|
|No attempt was made to cross at the wooden bridge. Bowmen on either side just exchanged volleys of arrows|
|English knights just manage to see of their flanking French counterparts|
|English ready to move across the bridge while also moving to cross a unit of foot sergeants and knights across at the ford.|
|Prince Riddick charges across the bridge covered by his archers. This gallant charge was to see him unhorsed and the attack fail.|
|Emboldened by the sight of seeing Prince Riddick fail and retire hurt Baron Chastain charges across the bridge. The remaining bowmen defenders were just enough to gain revenge and it was the Baron's turn to leave the battlefield.|
|Both sides were just handing on without their leaders when flanking English units were just enough to tip the game in their favour.|
