Day One of our "Warfare in the Levant" simulation saw the armies surge forward and some efforts to gain an advantage through maneuver. Day Two saw the first units come into contact and the first serious casualties.
|Trevor pushes the Crusader infantry forward in the center. Is that a TARDIS by his hand? Hm, it seems to make an appearance in most of my 28mm battlefields.|
|Lauren considers sweeping to her right to help the Turks, but decides instead to sweep Christian archers off the hill in front of her.|
|Oh, noes! A charge of Crusader knights falls just short of reaching its target. The Muslim bowmen to each flank now have a juicy target in front of them.|
|The knights int he foreground have just caused the Arab skirmishers to rout off the board. will the spearmen and cavalry be able to protect the oasis to their rear?|
|The pilgrims have been inching forward, and now they have the chance to prove their faith. They took a lot of hits from the Arab cavalry rushing into them, but they passed their morale check. I guess faith counts for something.|
