As you all remember thhat back May 1466 the Union forces tried to Raid Penningby but was repulsed due to stiff Allmoge resistance.
The Union/Archbishop forces haven´t had time to replace all losses so the Rebells under command of the Knight Nils Bosson Sture of the House Natt och Dag have the uperhand. In July 1466 the rebells decide to attack a Union supply column destined to the Archbishop and his troops that defending the Swedish capital Stockholm.
This all translate in to the "Raiding a Waggon Train" scenario from the rulebook, we used the scenario more or less as stated in the book.
Swedish rebells forces (Commanded by Jonas)
Influence: 4 (Raised by 1 due to the last victory)
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 more or less just have turned side from pro union to rebell)
1 unit of 4 Frälse
forgotten in teh last AAR was the Handgunners/Skirmishers acting as a indipendant group of 4 bases
Union forces (The some what depleted Union force was Commanded by me)
Commander Erik Nilsson of the House of Oxenstierna (Cousin to the Archbishop)
1 units of 4 Frälse
Leader Erik Karlsson from the House of Vasa (Brother in law to Erik Nilsson)
1 units of 6 Fotknektar
Leader Trotte Karlsson of the House of Eka
1 unit of 4 Skyttar
3 supply wagons to protect.
Behind the city walls was the Union Reinforcements but due to the losses in the last game the only reinforements available was a group of 4 German Mercenary Handgunners...
We diced to get the entery point for the Swedeish Rebells and it become the middle section of the left side.
So to the game I hope the text in the pictures explane it all to you...
Yet a nother greate gaming session, best of all that I...The Union managed to win althought they had a very depleted force. It become a very exiting struggle that wasn´t decided untill the last moment then the Union Knights managed to brake the Darlecarlian Hardened Allmoge and also Wound the Swedish Commander Nils Bosson Sture.
- Union Victory, recived Light losses and would recover them in a month time and will be ready for action in September, they also rais their Influence to 4.
- Swedish Loss, recived Moderate Losses and would recover them in two month time and will be ready for action in September...
We decided that the Swedish Commander Nils Bosson Sture and his Leaders would go to Darlecarlia to get the support of more of their Allmoge so they would be strong enought to Attack an seize the Castle in Västerås and take controll of the county Västmanland.
To stop them the Union side decide to send a force in November 1466 to try to Capture the Rebell leaders and bring them to justice in Stockholm...
So our nex scenario would be the "Raiding a Border Tower" from the Dux Britanniarum rules, there you should capture the enemys leaders for ransom...perfect for our story to:)
