History repeats itself

England vs. France, 100 years war, WAB, 1000pts.

French knights, Genoese crossbowmen sensibly placed behind a hedge,
French knights in a narrow formation to avoid terrain, and crossbowmen
in fast march formation, ready to cross a bridge.

Archers, billmen, archers, dismounted knights, archers.

The heroes of France charge across the battlefield.

The heroes of France meet some English and run away.

These knights lock into combat with the archers.

English knights charge the stalemate in the flank.

After a brutal battle, the French flee. Count Waleran, French general, is killed
by Henry V in a challenge. 

The death of the general makes the Genoese flee as well.

At this point the game was over. The French scored not a single point, while only having one unit left. I didn't even add up the scores out of respect for France. But it's still always fun to get medieval!
