Over the weekend I played a game of Hail Ceasar with Duncan, to try that game out. I found it to be a fun game, allot simpler then the more complicated games like DBMM or FoG.

Here is the inital set up:

The welsh advanced a bit and fired some skirmishing shots into a unit of crossbows. In this game if you get a 6 on a shooting dice the defending unit has to take a break test, I rolled 2 1s for the crossbows so they were gone right off the start.

On my turn I charged in on the left with my knights. The way orders work is that you roll a dice for your general and depending on how much lower then his generalship value you get you can move your unit (or division) up to 3 times so you can cross the board quite quickly.

I forced the welsh back initally.

But they didn't break and in the end they got the upper hand and destroyed my knights.

On the right hand side of the board the welsh skirmishers occupied the town and we had a few assaults and some shot traded back and forth. In the end the welsh cavalary got involved and almost all of my units were left shaken so the right division was also broken giving me a loss.

Thanks;

Mike
