Roll Call 2016 Wrap up

All Hail Gustaphos Adolphos the Third!


The Later Swedes did well with three large wins and a draw.  I was really happy with the army and the plan, lots of Salvo foot with support and determined horse clearing out a flank.

Game 1 vs Ray's Early Swedes 9-11

First game was against Ray and his early Swedes.  His early Salvo foot proved to be tough and wouldn't break, resulting in a draw.  Ray deployed lots of steep hills down, blocking one entire flank. His commanded shot, supported by Reiters and dragoons cleared out one flank and was advancing onto me.  Maybe next time.

Game 2 vs Pete's Aztecs 25 - 0

First time I've played against Aztecs in FoGR.  I've played against them in FoGAM and got stonked, so was a little wary.  The army comprised of superiors and elite warriors with field fortifications, not that they stayed there for a while.

Game 3 vs Rob's 30 Years War French 20 -5

Last year, this army rolled me and I was looking forward for a bit of pay back.

Right hand flank with dragoons and armoured reiters.  They weren't expecting to be facing my determined horse!

Both armies had a simple plan, ADVANCE!

Overview of the table.

Lots of Salvo foot up for a bit of Swede on French action.

The Swedish line advancing, moving into battle formation.  My determined horse saw a break thru and captured the artillery, causing a few units nearby to go disrupted.

Game 4 vs Dave's Samurai 21-4

Dave and I faced each other for the final game and our ritual squabble at the end of a competition.  We seem to face each other quite often now in the final game and we have an ongoing side game running on who gets more points in the competition.  Plus, it's a good way to finish a competition with Central London having a good scrap!

Dave's Samurai don't bother waiting for me to come across the table, they advance, looking for a fight.

My right flank, locked down by a village.  The Swedes see just one option, advance thru it and hope they can clear thru before the Samurai arrive.

That's a lot of superior Samurai!
