On Sunday we didn't make it to Matt's Ides of March ancients day in Goulburn, so Craig and I had a six point Saga game instead with Craig's Anglo-Danish vs my Normans. We used the standard Clash of Warlords scenario. The Normans got off to a bad start by charging but failing to inflict many casualties on the Anglo-Danish geburs.The sole Norman survivor was forced to retreat ignominously in flight so as to preserve the number of Saga dice for the side! Worse was to follow as the other unit of Norman knights met a similar fate at the hands of the Flemish swords for hire. The Anglo-Danish repeatedly played Trapped and Exhaustion abilities to further frustrate the Norman plans.
The Normans attempted to whittle away at the Anglo-Danish playing Massed Volley and Storm of Arrow abilities with their levy bowmen and cross bow armed serjeants. The Anglo-Danish counter attacked with a warrior unit of Fryd and a hearthguard unit of Huscarls. Fighting intensified around the ruined Church in the centre of the table and the Normans were able to wipe out the unit of Huscarls but suffered heavy casualties themselves and were driven back. At this point the Normans were poised to make a devastating charge with some heavy hitting Charge! and Dex Aie abilities but the Anglo-Danish used the Norman fatigue to reduce their move so the charge was aborted. The Anglo-Danish counter attacked and the Norman Warlord isolated from his warriors was easy prey for a unit of Huscarls. Thanks to Craig for another fun Saga game.
