The English are arrayed between two woods, they are the defender.
I should probably just charge, but, wait, I have skirmishers.
And these guys on my far left.
The view from the English line.
We advance. Going to be slow as I'm back to using U equals 1 cm.
Deployment was a minimum 20U back from the centre line.
This shot gets the whole lot in (end Turn 2).
End Turn 3 and the English are not moving, maybe just a bit of shuffling.
Turn 4 and we are under some pitiful artillery fire (phew).
My Breton javelinmen are having a look in the woods today.
They are old Mike's Models I think. From a phase when I was doing thick bases.
Turn 5 and long range English bowfire is starting to kick in.
Turn 6 and the English are moving to protect their camp.
How will the heavy infantry find the going in the woods?
By the end of Turn 7 the Bretons on my right have routed with the first unit of enemy longbow they encountered. My forces are getting some disorder, but still pressing ahead (5cm per turn).
The English heavy infantry struggle in the wood.
Turn 9 and I get a nice surprise with an upgrade to my CinC
My neat lines have broken up by the end of Turn 9, but the real fighting is the skirmishers on the flanks where I am having considerable success.
English knights getting stuck in the trees.
End Turn 10. It's slow work.
How lucky can I get? My 2iC gets an upgrade.
I reckon my new camp has won the favour of the dice gods.
End Turn 11 and my left wing is getting close.
In goes my CinC with the Gendarmes, should have been a bloodbath, but he fails to follow up far enough (even after a reroll using my one Hand of Fate).
End of Turn 12 and the left wing is fully engaged.
Turn 13 and the right wing of the English army collapses.
Turn 14 and the English get desperate.
But it is all over.
The French win.
Another great game.
We did have a few questions.
1. Do stakes count as "wooden protection" against firing? We assumed they do.
2. Does a little bit of terrain (woods for example) in the firing arc block firing? We assumed it did.
3. Is a unit still disordered after it leaves disordering terrain? We assumed it would need to rally.
