However, they (the Scots) soon had problems of their own as the English archers advanced into range and targeted the Scots archers. Douglas's archers were soon in disarray, (those that weren't casualties), and when the tardy Salisbury arrived with yet more archers, things were unlikely to improve for the Scots. Buchan did bring on his reinforcements to help Douglas, but the pikes were unable to make an impact.
With half my force lost (5 French units, 2 units of archers and a pike block) the day belonged to the English. A most enjoyable game which flowed well. There was plenty of opportunity to talk to visitors to the show and discuss the rule mechanisms. Another review of the game can be found on Will's blog together with photos of the action and of other games on display.
Once again there was a good variety of games on offer and here are a few photos to give a flavour

The next "outing" is Phalanx in June and there is plenty to organise before then.
