Well, we walk away from the table and Mal, who was running the game, has discovered that we had far too many points on our side…so for part 2 of the game we lost a few of units on our side…
So a quick order change, and off we go…on the left flank, we charged in…and were countercharged. We were hopeful though, as our cavalry were far superior. In the middle, it was stand and shoot…whilst on Bobs flank, cavalry was turning in to have a go at the Danish rear…ooo errr….!
We won the combat on my flank, and Mal filed his morale roll. We pursued, and made contact for the second round of combat…this time, he was disorganised….however, his superior numbers were the difference, and it was a draw. Both sides withdrew.
Shooting was deadly this turn, with both sides taking losses.
In turn 2, we decided to press the advantage and attempt to win the flanks…using our rear unit to face off the enemy…we interpenetrated, but failed our skill tests, so both units became disorganised….we won the combat though, and Mals armoured unit retreated.
In the middle, Bob charged with multiple units, though Mal got his pike turned and the cavalry hit the front of steady pike…nasty!
The cavalry saved all their hits, and won the combat…well, they WERE armoured…!
The pike unit disintegrated….and Bob mopped up the remaining units…
….and the flank and a big chunk of the centre was gone…..game over!
Excellent game, but probably more suited to a smaller game than we were trying to do. Still enjoyable though, and very tactical!
