Last Sunday Bern, Gary, Craig and I met at the Vikings Club in Lanyon for the monthly Sunday meeting of the Capital Region Wargames Club. There was quite a good turnout with twenty two people playing various miniature games and rule sets from ancients through to WW 2. We played a Hail Caesar, Normans versus Saxons game, of 450 points with three divisions. Craig and I were the Norman commanders while Bern and Gary did the honours with the Saxons.
Here are a few photos of our game. The Saxons' shieldwall managed to hold out against the charges of the Norman Milites with the Huscarls in particular proving a tough nut to crack. In the end it was a hard fought draw, with a single broken division on both sides, but the Saxons held the advantage and the field. Thanks to Bern, Gary and Craig for another fun game.
