AAR Vikings vs Anglo-Saxons

Just a short update to say that Dalauppror has posted a very nice AAR of the first game of our little "Viking Age campaign" using Dux Britanniarum. I'm fielding my Anglo-Saxons as the British and Dalauppror is using his impressive Vikings as the Saxons.

The first scenario was the sea raid scenario from the Too Fat Lardies "Summer Special 2012" giving us an excuse to use Dalauppror's very cool Viking ships. The game ended in a narrow victory for the Anglo-Saxons, as their fierce resistance sent the Vikings packing. In the picture above you can see the battlefield at the end of the game – more, and better photos are available at Dalauppror's blog.

And now the dreaded Norsemen are back! Tomorrow night we will play the second game in the campaign, another Viking raid from the sea. Will the brave Saxons fight off the brutal invaders once again? We can only hope!

PS: I know I should have posted an update on the Welsh projects, but the weekend has been quite hectic. However, I've started with the post and it should be up in a day or two. Sorry to keep you waiting.

    Looking forward to get a new chance to pillage, a Saxon village this time:)

    Best regards Michael
