Over the day we had four games to play, so here's the very quick run down of how I did...
I think we were pretty evenly matched during this game, but Andy beat me on victory points - if I'd just kept my levies safe it would have been a draw!
Craig went first and moved most of his warband towards the warlord, but didn't attack. On my turn I pushed two units into combat and did some damage to the warlord, but not enough to be decisive.
The remainder of the battle basically took place in the centre of the board, but neither of us really gained the upper hand, despite some close calls on either side. The eventual outcome was a minor win to Craig - his warlord had 3 wounds left to my 2.
After a surprisingly substantial lunch (half a roast chicken was involved), the third game was the escort scenario, against the (you guessed it) Vikings of Paul, a player not from the club. I was escorting, and was able to divide my opponent's forces by deploying the baggage at the extreme edges of the board. Some use of defensive abilities on the battle board and a bit of luck allowed me to wipe out the force facing me on the left flank with 2 baggage markers alive there, so I forced marched these off the board before the Vikings could regroup and won this game. You'll notice I forgot to take any pictures of this though.
The final game was the 4-way Feast for Crows scenario, against Tom's Normans, Craig's Vikings and Paul H's Anglo-Danes.
Tom's Normans dominated the early part of the game with long ranged shooting, doing lots of damage to the Vikings while the two Anglo-Dane forces faced off against one another without really getting too close. Eventually though, I closed with Paul's force and wiped much of it out, but by this point he'd already done a lot of damage to me and taken some of Tom's cavalry too. Craig managed to more or less wipe out Tom's force, but took very heavy casualties himself.
This was another close game, but eventually I finished bottom of the four of us - Paul grabbed the win, much to his own surprise!
So, I think I managed some lower-mid table mediocrity in the scores, but the highlight for me was the obvious lapse in judgement on the part of the painting judges, who awarded me the prize for best painted warband!
I had a choice of prizes, and decided on some Norman Milites. These are going to form a good chunk of my next Saga force!
