One note on the play of this game in comparison to the convention: In the home game, the English players made very aggressive use of their bowmen, ensuring that they got to shooting positions and stayed shooting as much as possible. At the convention, the English players did not, and were eventually overwhelmed by the arriving reinforcements. How much tactical advice should a gamemaster hand out during a convention game?
|Alleyne and companions fight their way up the road|
|English archers being used aggressively to the left and the right of the advance up the road|
|Along the other approach, a few French crossbowmen gamely attempt to hold against the English|
|In an effort to delay matters, the French herd the cows into the constricted area of the churchyard|
|At last, the French reinforcements appear|
|....only to be shot down by the waiting longbows|
