|Normans square off against the Byzantines|
Ron's Byzantines consisted of 4 units: 1 mounted Hearthguard, 1 mounted Hearthguard with bows, 1 foot Hearthguard, and 1 levy bow javelin unit.
|Norman Crossbows setup with excellent fields of fire.|
|The Normans in all their splendor.|
|Normans have a general advance|
|Javelins move forward|
|The Normans prepare for the charge|
|The view from the Byzantine side|
|The Normans come out swinging! The Byzantine cavalry and javelins suffer the brunt of the ire.|
|Cavalry squaring off|
|The Kataphraktoi find themselves in a precarious situation|
|And because of their poor armor in melee, the Norman Hearthguard are able to ride them down.|
|The Byzantines are left with few men|
|When the rest of the Norman force charges in, the Byzantine warlord watches the cavalry advancing...|
|And yields 'ere the Normans have his head|
This was a fun game with Ron, who doesn't have a lot of games under his belt. Pretty straight forward tactics with the Normans- shoot with my crossbows and charge when the dice are right. Thanks Ron for having me up!
And here's a few more pictures from my 2nd game with Malcolm. This game saw my same Norman force face his Vikings which consisted of 1 8 man Hearthguard Unit, 1 12 man Levy unit, and 1 Berserker Unit.
