Oh I was so tired today and was suppose to get two games in, SAGA and Flames of War. Needless to say I only got the SAGA game in and called off the FOW game due to being tired and sleepy.
So back to the title. I played an 8pt game of SAGA with normal rules (no 8pt game rules).
My friend had the first turn moved about and shot some of my levies on my left. My turn I sent one of my Welsh cavalry units to run down the norman bowmen, hit them 3 times till he was down to 3 men.
Normans send their cavalry to kill my horsemen, after two melees, I had one horseman left, good enough for me. =) I expected them to be promptly all dead in the ground. I move around and throw javelins killing a few guys.
Normans finish off the last Welsh horseman on my left. shoots up my 2nd cavalry unit with his crossbowmen who he moved and shoots twice, knocking me down from 8 to 4, ouch. I move units around to get within javelin range knocking down Normans here and their.
Normans with a warrior unit of 4 men rush into my 5 in a woods. "Ambush" ability used, I hold off and crush the attack. More shooting from the Normans and recovering fatigue. Little movement on his part. "Taint" a Norman cavalry unit on my right, close enough for me to move in. I move a few units and throw more javelins to cut his numbers down before I rush them.
Normans try to hold on 4 horse Hearth guard tries to run down a unit of warriors in the center, I life with one man limping away. Norman Warlord rides up next to a warrior unit of his own towards mine, more shooting from his end. Finally the writing is on the wall, I run in with my warlord towards his but I drag a unit of warriors with me. He took 5 hits, 4 go to his warrior unit. His warlord backs off 4 inches, I promptly run into the damage unit of norman warriors who are down to 3 men, due to 4 lost from the 1st melee and one from shooting earlier on. I run them over and have one more combat on his warlord who dies bleeding in his homeland.
Victory goes to the pointy sticks!!!
