Meet The Neighbours Part Seven – Normans v Slavs

Filed under: Campaigns,Game Reports — Jay @ 10:08 pm

Turn 9: Robert and Henry both receive reinforcements of one Blade unit apiece.

Turn 10: Robert’s new Blades don’t like the look of things and immediately desert! Henry meanwhile finds himself facing a Slav attacker. The Slav NPG is designated aggressive, but without the advantage of choosing the terrain he faces a difficult struggle. Henry (on the right in the picture below) deploys Knights, Blades and Bows to face his enemies:

Slav Auxilia advance into the bad going to take on the Norman bowmen – surely their best chances of picking off some enemy units:

This fight develops on the Norman left, while Henry advances his centre and right towards the waiting Slavs, who are immobilised by poor pip throws:

A lucky dice throw sees off one unit of Slav Auxilia, while there is a stand-off in the rough going:

Hand-to-hand fighting all along the line, with Bows flanking Auxilia in the rough and Henry’s Blades and Knights crashing into the Psiloi-supported Auxilia in the centre:

The Slav Auxilia hold off the Norman Bows, but in the centre it’s a different story, with two quick kills for the Normans:

The Slav general launches a desperate counter attack against a unit of Norman Blades, but another Auxilia detachment is destroyed and it’s game over:

It’s another thumping victory for Henry, whose war chest at the end of turn ten stands at 550 gold pieces. Robert, in contrast, still has only 300 gold pieces.
