The modifications so far served us well and my new multi-basing did not hinder play, actually speeding up movement and cheaper than adding magnets to keep the damn figures in place in the trays.
The game looked to be going in the Saxons favour with the Force Morale of the British going down to one,while the Saxons stood at six. That was until Baldinus with no troops to influence in the fight, joined his hearthguard who were locked in combat with their Saxon counterparts and the Saxon leader, Penda Fudd.
Suddenly Penda was hors-de-combat and the Saxon Force Morale plummeted to two! It was all to late though, the Saxons enraged at the death of their leader wiped out another base of British who upon testing morale lost another base, the resulting Force Morale test saw the British Force Morale reduced to nil, forcing the remaining men to withdraw, so battered were the Saxons that they did not contest the withdrawal and were content to hold the ford and carry away their leaders body.
Some pictures of the action follow below -

We plan to be at Warfare on Sunday so next week we will be having another small game, a raid this time, for even now a new threat to the Britons looms in the form of Bicca se Gebraken, who has been waiting patiently for the opportunity to replace the fearsome Penda Fudd.
