OOB Raid on Penningby 1466
The OOB for this scenario, there we used the Village Raid scenario stright from the book, was:
Swedish rebells forces (Commanded by Jonas)
Commander Nils Bosson Sture of the House of Natt och Dag (Owner of Penningby)
3 units of 6 Allmoge each from Roslagen
Leader Sten Gustavsson of the House of Sture
2 units of 6 Hardened Allmoge each from Dalarna and Hälsingland
Leader Ivar Axelsson from the House of Tott (That just have turned side from pro union to rebell)
1 unit of 4 Frälse
Union forces (Commanded by me as our Danish, and ofcourse pro union, friend Sören got sik in the last minute)
Commander Erik Nilsson of the House of Oxenstierna (Cousin to the Archbishop)
2 units of 4 Frälse each
2 units of 6 Fotknektar each
Leader Trotte Karlsson of the House of Eka
1 unit of 4 Skyttar
Basing of the minis
As you might have notice I don´t have my 15th century minis on single bases as stated in Dux Britanniarum. We used my multibased minis as 1 base in the game was 1 mini in the rules.
Infantry 3-4 minis on a 40x40mm base
Cavalry 2 minis on a 40x50mm base
Commanders and Leaders 1 Mounted and 2-3 fott on a 40x50mm base
So here are some pictures from the game, click on the and thet get sligthly bigger:
This was a splendig game, although I didn´t achieve the Unions goals to plunder Penningby. Even using the same rules as for our Viking adventure with Dux Britanniarum this game feelt completely different in style, might be the use of mounted units, or that we used quit much terrain or may be the size of bases? Any way was it a very enjoyable gaming session.
The results of the raid that would effect our campaign was:
- Swedish Victory, recived Light losses and would recover them in a month time and will be ready for action in Juli, they also rais their Influence to 4.
- Union Loss, recived Moderate Losses and would recover them in two month time and will be ready for action in August...
Using this opportunety the Swedish Commander Nils Bosson Sture of the House of Natt och Dag can commence a raid as early as in July and get a advantage of that the Union forces arn´t fully renewed...
So our next game will be a Swedish raid of a under strenght Union supply column...
Historical re-cap: The Swedish Commander Nils Bosson Sture of the House of Natt och Dag was probably not present then the Archbishops troops raided and burnt his estate at Penningby. Nils Bosson Sture retaliated with his 8 svennar (Squires) by traveling to Hälsingland and capture all the Archbishops gathered taxes and rally the Allmoge to a rebellion, more about that later...
