Play test result are now at the blog. The three games resulted in narrow victories, but could easily have swung the other way. All three games last six turns and neither side had problems with pip scores.

Well the historical victors won twice but there was one upset so I think that shows the game is winnable for either side. So good scenario game then!

That is the challenging part of designing scenarios minimal deviation from the historical course of events, yet alternative outcomes are possible.

Historically, the arrival of the Breton contingent, atop the hill, behind the English line did create a panic forcing Gough to move most of his command across the river to defend the English rear.

Having the Bretons appear at the board edge to march three or four turns to reach the English would not create the same level of urgency, but letting them appear 6BW (standard deployment distance) from the nearest English element would.
