Round one of AndyH's campaign. The battle at the ford... against AndyM2 (not to be confused with AndyM, AndyB or AndyMac, either).
It opens with two champions duking it out at the ford - three rounds of combat, and Wulstan, son of Wulfhere (yes, that Wulfhere) lays the Angle Atheling low. And it all went downhill from there.
What are we all forgetting here?
It's a Saxon army.
It's a Saxon Raider army, which means all its major foot units are warband.
Failed warband test for the Gedriht sitting on the ford, who have already been taking slingshot fire, and now charge headlong into two units of Duguth.
I think what's most impressive is that they lasted three rounds of combat, even with help from my Geoguth, despite being outnumbered.
Needless to say, the end result was Wulfstan got trampled (and wound up with a head wound) and the rest of my army fled.
On the good side - while Andy won the battle, Wulfstan did get the Glory - 5 points worth for killing the Angle's Warlord in single combat!
