Yesterday Dave and I revisted the Dark Ages, we used an amended version of the Dark Age rules in Neil Thomas's, One Hour Wargames book. I also chose a scenario from the book, the British started with two units on a hill, with another four coming on table in turn two, the Saxons would have all six units from the start. The objective was to be in sole possession of the hill by turn fifteen, the Saxons started with a full on assault of the hill, with further units skirting the side to engage the relief force when they entered the table. The rules, even with the AMW Yahoo Group mods lived up to the title, Baldinus and British securing victory in around 45 minutes, we decided to have lunch and then play another game.
We chose an hold the crossroads scenario, this time the Saxon steamroller won through, decimating the British forces. So a win for Baldinus and a win for Penda Fudd. A great time was had, which shows you don't need complex rules.
Jury is still out on wether I continue blogging, maybe when I get a new PC I will feel better, tablets are not really up to the job.
