Midgard: Hundred Years War clash
It's back to back gaming at Scrivsland, following on from the American Civil War action on Saturday we played a Hundred Years War battle on Sunday using my collection with the Midgard rules that James is currently playtesting and will hopefully be published soon.
James played a French force, led by the Duke of Orleans (L2) accompanied by the Constable of France (L1), the Duke of Brabant (L1) and the Counts of Eu (L1) and Vendôme (L1), these led a force of four units of mounted men at arms, two units of foot men at arms, a unit of billmen, two units of spearmen and a unit of crossbowmen.
Paul and I commanded the English, led by Henry V (L4), the Duke of York (L2), Baron Camoys (L1) and Sir Thomas Erpingham (L1), the English troops were four units of foot men at arms and six units of bowmen.
We would be trying out some stakes rules for bowmen for the first time.

The English deployed quite far back with a centre of men at arms supported on each side by archers, a detachment of archers and men at arms was deployed on our right to counter any French attacks around the woods there.
The French concentrated their main body in the centre, and as expected two units of Gendarmes were positioned attempting to exploit around those woods.
