SAGA Campaing Game 1

Last Monday did we start up our Saga Campaign in a small scale, 2 games was played using 4 point warbands.

Firsts we had a clash up in the north between Jarl Eirik and hes followers and Earl Godwin that had gathered new troops sins he´s last defeat, and he was out for revange...

White - Viking - V
Green - Anglo-Danish - AD
Blue – Norman - N
Yellow – Welsh - W

The 2 Warbands had encountered eachother near a Saxon settlement that Jarl Eirik tought was a good catch.

BUT he haden´t expected to find Earl Godwin in the area with he´s newly assembled warband...

Jarl Eirik took the initiative and sent he´s Berserkers around the field for a flank attack...as he adwanced with he´s Hird towards a awaiting Anglo-Danish force...

The berserkers soon run in to a buch of Anglo-Danish Ceorls it become a har fight with several casualtys on both sides, the remaning Ceorls run to and hided behind some Houscarls... Smells like Viking Victory:)

The Anglo-Danish was still awaiting in fear behind their shields...as the 2 remaining Berserks ruched forward the Housecarls...slaying 2 of them before the Valkyries helped them to Valhal...

The 3 remaning Ceorls allso run away then Jarl Eirik used the Loki ability:)

Now Earl Godwin thought it was a good time to join the battle with he´s main force, they all made a swift advance against the Jarl Eiriks Hird...

It turned out to be a real slaughter, you realy don´t wan´t to be in the way for the Dane Axes...

Then the sun started to fade away both sides thougt it was best not to continue the fight...It had been a even fight, but as the Anglo-Danes had some more men standing they claimed the Victory...

It was a realy good, tense and interesting game that started out quite good for the Vikings but with good use of the fatigue giving abilities ended with a minor Anglo-Danish victory (Anglo-Danish 12 VP, Vikings 11 VP)
