500 points Field of Glory - Later Medieval Scots (Britain) vs. Hundred Years War English (Britain)
3 Troop Commanders
4 BG's of 8 Spearmen each
1 BG of 4 Scottish knights on horse
1 BG of 4 French knights on horse (slightly better than the Scottish knights)
2 Troop Commanders (I accidentally deployed 3, and one did nothing all battle anyway)
3 BG's of 4 Dismounted men at arms
4 BG's of 8 longbowmen each
500 pts is a fairly small game for Field of Glory, but when playing in 28mm the armies fill my 6 foot table from end to end.
|Engish right flank.|
|English left flank. The unfortunate forest in the middle of the|
deployment zone split the army in two.
|Scottish right flank. The pivotal Scottish men at arms are on the left of the picture.|
|Scottish left flank. French men at arms anchor this flank. In spite of being rated|
Superior, they performed much more poorly than their Scottish counterparts!
|The English stay put turn after turn, until the Scottish arrive in longbow range.|
The Scottish units suffered some minor disruption and a base loss.
|Bring the pain! Scottish men at arms smash into English archers. In the back|
ground some Scottish spearmen flee.
|The archers break, the Scots pursue them right off the table...|
|...while the French men at arms fragment, doing very poorly.|
|But Scottish spearmen, showing much more heart than their French allies,|
break English men at arms and kill their commander, leaving this flank without
|After trampling the English archers, the Scots knights flank charge the English|
left flanks men at arms, causing fragmentation and enough attrition points to win.
I really like Field of Glory. It's a great way to get a bazillion figures on the table and still finish fairly quickly! Thanks for reading, hope you liked it.
