Both sides advanced tentatively at first, each weighing the other up before committing, while on the right each sides skirmishers proceeded to fight their own little battle for the game. The Brits fielded their recently built ballista, but it had little effect with its own infantry limiting its deployment.
Eventually both sides decided to get stuck in and all the troops who could were engaged while both hearth guards stood back ready to intervene. Things were even for a time but eventually the British casualties mounted up and units started to disintegrate, giving Bikka the new Saxon warlord is first convincing victory.
I do need to get some more figures painted so that we can begin our campaign, but I have been diverted to medieval Italy for a joint project with Dave and I now have a terrain commission giving me little time for my own figures so it might not happen until autumn, but we will no doubt have a few games in the meantime to test rule tweeks if nothing else.
Off to WMMS on Sunday, snow permitting.
