At the weekend I ran a reprise of the Hastings scenario for Thomas and Robert. They ran the Normans with some help from Cate, while I as the English tried to withstand their onslaught.
It is about this time that Cate takes over for a while from Thomas, and promptly shoots Harold and also one of his brothers. Elements of the Anglo-Saxons lose their cool as a result and charge downhill, only for the Normans to retire after an initial fight, drawing then onward.
At this point, my army disintegrated, and the Normans took the hill, cutting through gaps in the defending line. About a third of the army escaped, led by Harold's surviving brother. Fortunately for the Normans, my command prohibitions meant that I had to sit on the hill and watch as they got themselves into position. If I had free command, I would have come down en masse and hit them while they were still marching about the place.
This was the first game in my restored games room. The deal is that I have it for one half of the year, while the Triffids get it for the growing season. We had some really good tomatoes this year!
