Here's our map after 3 Rounds, things are start to take shape with Normans and Saxons totally on the defensive. The Caliphate has just been rampaging, Rich is getting very high scores in his games the Caliphate vs Norman Score last week was 40-28, while explaining the scoring isnt pertinent here, the scores are mainly kill points and the relevancy is your score is used to dicate map move against all opponents not just the one you played this week. So with three high scoring games, the Caliphate is on a tear. Chris and his Byzantines had a very close game versus my Saxons (32-24 his favor) where I wiped our his center division turn 2 on charge from my Huscarls that was a result of Blunder, if you can believe that, and shattered his two main infantry units in that division, a follow up charge the same turn from my Coerls broke the division. Just when you thought I had the upper hand, Chris's cavalry came back and had similar revenge...it came down who crack the second division first, I had some chances but the dice said it was not to be and he did it
I have been pretty stagnant for last two rounds, and need to make something happen this week. I am playing the Normans this week, so I'll squeeze some of those French territories where I can but we need slow down the green tide. Aaron and his Normans have their hands full with two armies cut off behind enemy lines in the Pyrenees. Should be an interesting week!.
Plastic Legions is a hobby blog covering my own Wargaming, model building and miniature painting pursuits. I'm currently modeling and Painting figures for Bolt Action, SAGA , Deadzone, Frostgrave and Otherworld Skirmish.
From 2007-2011 I was a die hard Warhammer Fantasy tournament player, but have since regressed back to my roots of casual skirmish games and the enjoyment of painting.
The blog is a decade old now and that is hard to believe! I started in 2007 right after getting back into hobby after 20 years away and my 1st child. Over these last 10 years I've made alot of new friends and done alot of great gaming. I really have an "anything goes" approach to the blog so other games and topics will arise as they may, which is why you wont find me on alot of other peoples dedicated blogrolls for "x" game. I'm kind of just out there on the digital "High Seas" winging it, but like a good pirate that's the way I like it. If you want to contact me I can be emailed at: firstname.lastname@example.org
