Have got all the figures painted for this project and love the rules - they are becoming one of my favourite sets . So I've decided to play a series of three linked games as suggested in the book.
The two opposing commanders on the left Richard De Montfitchet who is counted as being strong and has boasted that he will challenge his opponent to hand to hand combat . On the right Ivo Tailebois who is gifted commander and not given to making boasts.
The retinue of Richard De Montfitchet , three units of mounted Serjeants , two units of mercenary Geonese crossbowmen and a unit of javelin armed Yeomen .
Ivo Tailebois's retinue comprises of two units of mounted Men at Arms , two units of foot Serjeants and a unit of Cheshire bowmen .
The table set up for the first game which is 'The Messenger' scenario . Ivo Tailebois has to escort an important messenger - a certain Brother Cadfael who is carrying a dispatch to King Stephen from the Bishop of York which must not fall into the hands of the forces of the rebel Empress Maud . Tailebois forces are moving down the road right to left .and enemy has forces in the far left corner and a unit of crossbowmen nearest the camera . Too be continued.......
