|The Gedriht take the tower.|
|Strange things you find guarding|
ancient forts. Thanks, James!
As befits a warband army, I advanced before the dice made me, sending the Gedriht to take the tower, a band of Duguth across one side of the hill and the rest up another.
|My dice, and two units of my|
infantry, deserting me.
|It's an Age of Arthur battle. You can|
tell because the crunch fight is, as
ever, between both leaders and their
units! You can also see what's left
of one of Andy's units of Pedites
after my javelin men were through
throwing pointy sticks at them.
With a turn to go, Andy decided the only way to get any chance of a win was to charge my Gedriht in the watchtower: so he did. We had two rounds of an indecisive battle, which again I could have rolled better dice for, and that was it - watchtower still contested, battle officially a "Bloody Stand-Off".
Again. a great deal of fun - Andy's an all-around nice guy, and was very entertaining in his (accurate) explanations of what was going on to James, Anne and our house guest Rika.
Roll on Sunday.
