The scenario invloves the unwashed European masses marching through the wilderness on an ill defined road towards the Holy Land. Ahead of the column, an encounter with a caravan heading west is imminent. No Seljuk forces are deployed.
The Christian vanguard. Two commands of knights and 'local' guides.
The Christian mainward. A ragtaggle column of pilgrims, foot sergeants and knights.
The Christian rearward. More of the same.
Anyway, last night the game got underway:
Arrivals, the Seljuks are here!
Thousands of 'em.
The advance of the van is blocked.
The caravan scatters, getting in the way of everything (umpires choice!).
You never expect the Village People. Though to be fair, Peter did.
But, they are not as hard as they look.
Knights charge, the Seljuks falter - the Seljuk King is killed.
Turn 2. At the rear of the column, more Seljuks arrive.
The battle is now in two parts. A battle at the head and tail.
A shot of the action at the end of night one. Proving, if nothing else, that Frankish pilgrims will always plough the fields and scatter.
Next week the action will continue
