First up, I needed two light infantry handgun units to finish off my Venetian Condatta army, two six man units,old glory, nice and easy to paint, lots of character.
Here it is:
Second command of two units of later knights, a unit of mounted crossbow men a unit of Stratdios ( veteran javelin armed) and attached general.
Third command of two units of later knights,a unit of mounted crossbow men a unit of Stratdios ( veteran javelin armed) and an attached senior general.
First game was up against Simon (the author of the rules) with his Milanese Condatta army, so historical opponents, unsurprisingly I lost, but I had great fun and learnt to garrison my camp in future!
Next game was against a Nikephorian Byzantine army led by another Simon, which literally ran rings around me and I also found my later knights bouncing off his Varagnian guard,a good time had by all, another loss.
Third game I was up against King Arthur's knights led by Ian,in the guise of, feudal French,lots of knights,this time I clung onto a draw, mainly down to the resilience of my later knights , should have lost!
Fourth and final game was against Gareth's WOTR Yorkist army, I didn't think I'd used my infantry and especially my deep pike block enough in the previous games and with a little more understanding of the game and a lot of luck I actually managed to win a game!
All the armies were nicely painted and a really nice crowd with lots of helpful advice from people who know the rules inside and out.
A very good way to spend the day in a lovely building, plus I got to see a mate who was playing in the guildball tournament.
Next up? Probably terrain,it seems to be taking a long time!
