Armored War Field Scenarios!

Every other scenario has archers, thrown, and siege.

Each battle represents a battle from history. 

Battle of Stamford: Even sides, open field. Resurrection. 

Thermopylae: power of spears 

  1. The knights and a few representative squires, or all those with spears, are the Greeks. The rest are the Persians. There’s a narrow approach. Greeks are allowed to set up first in the “gates”. Archers are not in the first run of the scenario. 
  2. Second run: archers are allowed. Greeks demonstrate the testudo. 

Battle of Northam (Boat landing): power of cohesion

Side one attempts to land boats. Scenarios is run twice, once with archers, once without. 

Battle of Stirling Bridge: power of preparation and tactics

The Scots get to set up a pocket at the end of a very narrow bridge. Same numbers on both sides. Run twice, once with archers and once without. 

Agincourt: power of archers and siege

Fewer heavy fighters, including all the combat archers and siege, on one side.  The other side approaches through a narrowed frontal approach, walking (to simulate the mud that hampered the French advance), and not using their shields for defense above their heads (to simulate the arrogance of the French as expressed by historians).  

Period Kit Tourney

It’ll be round robin, with best 2 of 3 final. Entry requires a kit that is documentable, with at least period images as documentation, no visible plastic except basket hilts, and be able to briefly explain the impression they’re portraying for the crowd.

Prize will be a $100.00 gift card to Aesir Metalwyrks
