As you will notice from the image some of us demand a map ... Chris whipped this one up to show the events to date.
600 AD: Northumbrian (Mike) beat Pict (Chris)
Mike's Northumbrians decisively beat the Picts. Both players decided to use all three of their territory cards. Chris deployed a large wood, a gentle hill and a town (which didn't come into play). Chris pushed his riders onto the hill out ahead of the main host, however a combination of the Northumbrian Hero and archers dealt with them rapidly. As the main battle lines clashed Mike's hero rolled up the Pictish left flank where the Pictish nobles had been. It was a comprehensive victory and Mike lost no troops during the battle.
