Last Sunday Craig, Bern and I met at the Vikings Club in Lanyon for a game of Lion Rampant. The scenario was the convoy - Craig commanded two 24 point retinues of Saracens (combined Egyptian and Seljuk retinues), and attempted to escort his baggage camels from a village, off to the opposite edge of the board. Bern and I had 24 point retinues of Crusaders each and our aim was to prevent this.
The convoy got off to a good start but eventually the Crusader Men-at Arms advanced and were able to make wild charges into the Saracens. In the end the Crusaders captured two of the three baggage camels and routed one Saracen retinue but suffered heavy casualties themselves. This was a tough scenario for the Saracens to win as at best they had Mounted Serjeants, Fierce Foot and Foot Yeomen fighting the Crusader Men-at Arms. Thanks to Craig and Bern for a fun game.
