Here is our Campaign Map post 6 rounds of play. Moves are pending for round 7 based on the above.
Scores last rounds where The Saxons over the Byzantines 34 -19 and The Caliphate over the Normans 34-10.
If you've been following this at all you'll see the Caliphate has been slowed slightly the last couple rounds a Saxon victory in Round 5 (barely) and a equal score forcing draws in Round 6 enabled me to consolidate and rebuild. Chris and his Byzantines have likewise held there own, and the loss to Saxons last round only really set the dispute over a neutral territory we where fighting over. What we currently have is 3 way ties with 19 territories a piece...Rich is in the lead with 101 Armies versus 81 for Chris and 80 for myself. Most number of territories at the end of 8 is declared the winner, with number of Armies as the tie breaker. The Norman empire is in its last throes, with 8 Territories and 24 armies he has suffered from a combination of being * man in the middle* and bad luck.. Dismissing his Heavy Cavalry would be foolish however and I since he and I are playing this week
I should probably work to complete absorb him and have him fighting for me in the last round, however a loss in that scenario would probably knock me out of the running so it might be best to skirmish against border territories and try for another smaller expansion protecting my Empires strength. However a strong push from either Rich or Chris with a high score could make that moot as well. Decisions, Decisions.
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
