Monday night (20th May) we tried the Ravenfeast set of rules, our Skirmish would be between a couple of warring Anglo Saxon Lords. We played a scenario featured in the rules called Back to the Boats.

The situation had a smaller force (blue) trying to exit the tabletop edge opposite to the one they were set up on with three groups of enemy (red), one to their front and the other two flanking them trying to stop them.

The blue war band tried the full charge straight ahead plan. They were able to reach the main red blocking force with the smaller red forces hot on their heels. The blue blocking force formed a central shield wall with ‘lighter' warriors on its flanks, the red force attacked the flankers and broke through them. Unfortunately for the charging blue force the combat allowed the red flanking warriors to catch up and the combined red forces defeated the blue one.

The rules were easy to pick up and all of us were quickly across them and we only had to refer to the rulebook a couple of times, there was one situation not covered but we quickly sorted it between ourselves. Ravenfeast delivered a fast action packed game which we enjoyed. We will play these again and George is looking at setting up a large battle with his huge 15mm collection of Dark Ages forces.

Some pictures…

The red main war band in the foreground awaits the charge from their foes! Sharp eyed readers may notice since I don't have any painted Anglo Saxon archers so some suspiciously ancient Germanic looking guys are standing in!

The blue forces men attack avoiding the four man 'shield wall' the blue side had created and picked off easier targets hoping to break through to the exit area! Not sure you can form a shield wall with four blokes but I suppose the term adds character and perhaps they are just huddling close for support?

The blue Lord and a few of his war band break through the defensive line victory is in sight or is it…
