Epic! I enjoyed the whole article, especially the planning details.
I always reckoned William won through luck rather than judgement (consider the number of horses killed under him) and you have proved me right :)

A massive thank you to everybody for their great comments – and thanks for wading through the article..apologies if it was too long

As the player who had the honour of playing as William in this game can I point out that on this occasion his win was entirely down to Tactical genius!! grin

Magnificent. Your wargame comrades should be very grateful to you for your wonderful dedication to bring a project to completion (not just this but others you have done). You must have a replay to try and recover your dice throwing. All that work deserves another chance.
