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.



  1. Nice set of armies. I need to stop adding to the army pile and do more gaming!
