Good times, Bad times….The forces of Ferndalia try to thwart the enemy's efforts at wrecking a pontoon bridge. A very near-run thing. you can follow the action here; link

Great report and photos.
Which rule set do you use?

fantasque, for larger battles such as this one we use Tercio by Magister Militium, for smaller games we use Pikemans Lament, both are fairly simple systems that play fast and give reasonably historic results

Many stratagems were employed to try to break the bridge, first a barge laden with combustibles

Shouldn't that be comestibles?

Stoppage, I see what you did there! That is brilliant, may I steal that idea for later use?
