Return of the Jim


Returned to the Campoon to find that Jim had reversed his decision to quit and is back in the land grab.

My territory survived intact but a barbarian incursion during winter knocked my income back. Also I've now got an unwanted fort after Mark (who I gave pre-written instruction to) misinterpreted the location of the peninsula's 'choke point'.

Dave S is now an underling of Matt (Grima to Matt's Saruman or, probably more appropriately, Smee to Cpt. Hook), and combined together they split the continent of Nu Campoon in two.

Positions: Year 3 Turn 3
From Campoon 3


Southern View


Turn 5 Positions


After this turn a couple of battles took place. One between the Nurgles and Paul after the Nurgles got sick of running away. The second between my Triangles and Dave M's Sassinids, as I put three armies against his one.



The Battle

Tel's Triangles 2800pts (based on Shildwall Wessex)

vs

Dave M 1400pts (Sassinids)

Starting positions


The Wall of Ceorls, trimmed with a line of Huscarls and Thegns. When Mark mentioned that we were a slow moving wall we pointed out that walls don't generally move at all.



The Triangles slowly push them off the board as not a single meelee took place, only some consistant sniping.

The hit and run tactics did knock down the Triangle forces a bit but the solid wall restricted the cavalry and with no more room to maneuver they left the field but only after mulling a trial charge of one of the numerous Shieldwalls.



End of Turn 5


Due to absentees next week (including myself) the campaign will be given a miss.
