|On the phone to Nannie explaining what's going on...|
|Its about to go pear shaped on each flank for both of us...cavalry outflanking the legions...|
|After this crucial combat, Cameron's uppermost legion broke and fled, causing his cavalry to turn and run, thereby preventing his flank attack. On the other flank, I did manage to get my Gallic horse onto his elite legionaries' flank. Game to Dad!!!|
Then, this morning, when Mrs Geetarhero popped out to a holistic therapy show thingy, Cameron and I set to on an Arthurian skirmish. The rules were cobbled from all sorts, with points values and basic combat from Saga, activation from Dux Britanniarum and morale form Lord of the Rings. This all made it very brutal and very bloody! The aim was to gain the jewels and destroy the opposing war band. Cameron took the upstanding Romano-British and I took the scurvy Saxons!
Cameron played this really well and had some uncommonly superb dice rolls, destroying almost all of my war band AND gaining 5 jewels to my 4! Victory for the forces of order!!! :-)
Enjoy the pics courtesy of the I-Pad, which I am at last getting to grips with!!

|Get stuck in, lads...|
|Clash or Warlords...this saw the Saxon warlord die under a hail of furious blows from his British counterpart...|
|Cameron threw 5 D6 needing 5+...I threw 10 needing 4+...results above...sigh... :-)|
