I make no apologies for the fact that if I manage to get some actual game reports up in the next few weeks, those who played in them will be aware they are out of sequence, and for usual readers they may seem a bit scant on detail. One of the things that really slowed down my blogging of late has been finding the time or willingness to write up long-winded narratives for games.
Which cyclically leads to my eventual recollection of the game being limited to what the photographs remind me of. Which is less than the fresh memory would've recalled.
Anyhoo. James T at the club had been itching to try Lion Rampant for a while, having made a start on a Muslim army to fit the rules. I was happy to oblige and figured my English would double as crusaders without any real issues, other than perhaps their basing!
We rolled the scenario and it required me to traverse the battlefield in the face of the enemy. Suddenly a 6'x4' table seemed enormous.
