|Those Caballeros do like to go into battle armed to the teeth!|
A great little game was played at the NWS on Wednesday night as Simon and his invading Almoravid hordes...well 130points of them at least...took on the hero of the hour El Cid and his battling, undermanned and overwhelmed 130 points of Feudal Spanish.
Well you didn't expect any fair reporting here now did you?
|Its always nice to start the infantry's activation with a 2|
|Nice view of Simon's lovely Almoravid's|
|Another shot of the enemy across the board|
|Extra archers ready to take on the enemy|
|The cavalry command on our left - strong veteran troops|
|Knight led by the wonderful limited edition El Cid figure which James Morris so kindly sent me many years ago|
|For some reason I thought my Citizen Spear were deep formations - should have lost one later in the battle -sorry lads!|
|Lets face it, they do look deepish...|
|Lovely General figure though tonight he was just a Heroic Senior Leader.|
|Need to fix those javelins and swords this weekend.|
|Guido's command trying to lull the enemy in knowing we have a flank march stratagem up our sleeve.|
|Might give those steel javelins a lick of paint at the same time...very poor effort by the Spanish|
|Great Gripping Beast figures with a couple of Crusader Miniatures figures thrown in for good measure.|
|Pretty hard to fire arrows without bows! Have I mentioned the Spanish commander needs to lift his game?|
|On our right the Spanish take the rough ground and pressure the enemy|
|In the centre the advance continues. Nice shot of Simon's African spear in the distance|
It was another fun game, lots of fun had by all and I think it is starting to get a few more members of the club converted to these wonderful rules. It is great that we have eight very active aficionados of TtS at our club.
Maybe time for a Macedonian v Indian epic soon!
