It has been a while since I posted.
On Wednesday we did a four faction SAGA game.  Anglo Saxons and Normans vs Scottish and Anglo-Danes.
Normans threaten the bridge with Archers, Crossbowmen and a Small Knight contingent

The rest of the Normans crossed at the Ford and advance across the field

Anglo Saxons advance down the Road.
An 8 figure unit of Norman Knights charged an Anglo Dane Warrior unit behind the Hedgerow.  The Hedgerow was no help and the Anglo Danes evaporated in the ferocity of the Norman Charge, killing only one Norman.  Shortly thereafter one of the 12 figure Anglo Saxon units charged a unit of Scottish Warriors who were likewise obliterated while only killing a handful of the Anglo Saxons.  That trend continued through the battle.  My units would be whipped out with limited casualties,  I had my victories - killing the Anglo Saxon warlord early on.  By the end of the game, the Scots were reduced to 3 warriors, the Warlord and a unit of Archers.   The Anglo Saxons had Units of 3, 6 and 8 warriors, The Anglo Danes had the warlord, 5 and 1 man  hearth guard units and a full Warrior Unit.  The Normans had the Warlord, units of 4 and 1 man knights, 7 crossbowmen and 12 Archers.  Bo was pleased with the performance of the Normans this time.
