Camp Cromwell Monday

Jim's Byzantines v. Rich's Crusaders

Rich deployed in 3 big huddles. The Byzantines deployed conventionally with infantry in the centre, heavy cavalry on the left, light cavlry on both flanks & elite cavalry in reserve. The Crusader huddles partially broke up but Rich kept his light cavalry on his right and his infantry in centre & left in deep blocks. This was imaginative thinking, but it just didn't work against an experienced opponant. The infantry blocks were pinned in front and charged in flank. The light cavalty block was hit by cataphracts & a 6 and was ridden down. The knights won 3 of 4 attacks, but it did them no good, the battle was lost elsewhere. A quick fun game.
