Russ and mark had expected me to bring the Japanese for a samurai POW battle, wheras I brought my Normans to fight Russ' Saxons. Which he hadn't brought.
However, we had enough to play small scale DBA (to get used to the rules again) and then large scale.
I have to say, it was a load of fun, all had a great time, we got 2 battles in (both won by Shakespeare) and are going to have another bash next week where Russ is aiming to get his Saxons ready.
What did we learn? Don't attack archers with knights, don't fight spear with archers and Mark is a chicken (he has a fear of the spear)
But he won, so what do we know!
|Mark lines up vs a hard-thinking Russ (or he's asleep)|
|Big DBA - lotsa fun|
|The Chess Master thinks out his next move|
|Normans rush towards Eastern Franks|
|Mark curses the wood for the 100th time|
|Fear of the Spear - Mark backs his cavalry away - again|
|Killing Russ' archers on the hill|
|Dice let Russ down - he should have cleared the middle here. In DBA, never roll 1's|
