We played the "Across the Ford" mission, but set it up so that the river was an angle to make it something different. and also plonked down some terrain, marsh at one end of the river and some trees and building to make it interesting.
|Initial setup, Saxons in the front with Pagus Rus on the far side, majority on the right side|
Saxons get the first turn and move quickly up and onto the right side ford, Andy stopped me doing the same on the other side with his annoying Frozen skill.
|Andy cautiously moves his Rus units up toward each ford, and the Steppe unit annoys me with a hail of arrows|
|Those pesky Steppe Nomads firing arrows again|
|The Saxon Warriors on the right side are taking a punishing, both by melee and by arrows, so I decide to redirect the reserve unit to go over to the left and adopt a delay operation on the right.|
|My Levy (or should I say Warriors thanks once again to the Saxon Kingdoms skill) charge into the Hearthguard and beat them senseless .... haha|
|My delay tactic proves ineffective , as Andy easily pushes the units aside|
|I move more across the ford|
|and also charge my small unit of warriors into andy's nomads, but only kill a few as I dont have the numbers to be that effective, and the nomads can turn thier attack dice into defense dice at a rate of one to one so makes them very hard to kill.|
|In Andys turn he activates his Endless Wastes skill (so annoying) and kills quite a few) then he charges his Warriors into the Levy thats made it across the Ford, and thanks to his For the Khargan skill he manages to get some kills in.|
