This time I'll put the GIF first, so the outcome will not be a surprise.
I had the advantage of deploying second this time.
I've matched my infantry against his infantry and my cavalry against his cavalry.
End of Turn 1 and both sides have advanced,
although the Andalusians are a bit more cautious.
I'm using my skirmishers to shield my cavalry,
however my light cavalry on the far left came off the worse for an early encounter.
By the end of Turn 3 I had lost the forces covering my flanks!
But just watch the Varangians in the centre.
Turn 4 and the Varangians are chewing up the enemy centre.
However my right is in trouble.
Turn 5 saw a massive mutual annihilation of our cavalry.
It included the Andalusian general.
My general is off running down the enemy light cavalry on my left flank.
By Turn 6 my army had sadly broken.
It was very much in the balance up until then and could have gone either way
(each side being one unit short of breaking).
