First battle was between The Army of Richard (AofR) and The Army of The Peasants' Revolt (PR). We sorted out the terrain and ends and then set up the toys. Charles defended with AofR and I attacked with PR.
AofR defending a nice church. PR looking impressively big
Gap opens in AofR line. Tactical apparently ;-)
PR advancing steadfastly
More advancing. More troop shuffling.
Battle is joined.
As before PR Hordes coming off second best
AofR Lurker attacks PR Hordes
PR Paladin drives off AofR Warband
AofR Shooters & Knights advancing in a flank-threatening manner
PR Hordes cause AofR Lurker to flee off the field
AofR Knights turn while AofR Sneaker wombles about a bit
AofR Shooters bring The Good News to PR Hordes
The other side of the battlefield
As you can see most of the PR Hordes are now gone
to a better place led by the PR Flyer.
I can't remember the exact numbers of PR dead but it was getting on for half.
PR Paladin recoiled the AofR Knights
and made a brave charge on the AofR Stronghold......
.....but failed to reach it.
The PR Hero General finds itself bereft of support.
AofR Magician just killed people without magic.
Definitely more than half of PR dead now.
Quite a comprehensive win for AofR. General Charles handled his army very well and now knows how best to use a Sneaker. As for PR I got carried away with my Flyer (ie didn't use it properly) and, as usual, my Hordes died in droves. Some poor PIPs didn't help either. I think that a re-classification of some Hordes to Warband will give PR a more bitey edge.
