The wedding crash, Håtunaleken AAR
For those interested in the last game in their campaign please look here: http://dalauppror.blogspot.se/2015/01/hatunaleken-lion-rampant-aar-2.html
In the last game Valdemar Magnusson, the kings brother managed to steal a bride and a new wedding was now planned.
Members of the Danish Hvide family was invited to partake in the celebrations. And thus I brought with me some troops on this trip.
But enemy forces from the houses of Ulvåsa and Oxenstierna had gathered their strength and would not let this happen... Their objective was to bring down Valdemar and ours was to brake the enemy forces by taking out half of their units.
We used the Lion Rampant rules and I have really started to enjoy these. A deck of cards with the houses name and image was used to draw in which order each player was to command his troops. This is a fun way for multiplayer games.
My mounted crossbowmen tries to avenge their comrades.
I just love this picture...
It really looks like a nasty place to try to assault.
Red versus blue... Its easy to see who is who. A very striking colour palette.
Enemy heavy infantry charges Valdemar and his knights, he manages his counter-charge reaction...
Big thanks Michael for inviting me to participate in your campaign.
