Once more I find myself snowed under with work, study and life in general, but here I have an hour to pop up the photo's of a Lion Rampant introductory game from a couple of months ago. Ross freshly beck from the land of Ice and Fire fancied a try of historical gaming, and already knowing Dragon Rampant I figured Lion was an easy lead.
Looking at my available models I figured my Feudal English could be matched in numerical terms by a mishmash of my Saga Vikings and Franks. Thus a late period Scandinavian army could face the English.
It may sound implausible, but in fact Scandinavian raids on England did not conveniently end with 1066 and all that, Eystein II raided Scotland and England in 1152 whilst the last Norwegian raid into Scotland is recorded as 1263.
Thus historically satisfied we set our forces for a simple battle of attrition. A small Northumbrian farmstead, with an old stone circle was the scene of a heavy skirmish betwixt the two forces.
