As with our previous outings we will be using our 'in house' version of the Lion rampant rules, so players new to the period can get involved in the game easily. All the information required can be found on two sides of an A5 sheet.
In between our various family commitments, Steve and I managed to run through the scenario this week. Against normal procedure, I managed a win, (though Steve did have some terrible luck with the dice!). Having the rebels meant I merely had to stop Sir Roger's progress to achieve a win. Steve had to attack and I managed to get in the first shower of arrows (though that wasn't guaranteed). In addition, I managed to win the decisive cavalry melees (though I did lose my leader in the process).
Here are a few photos of the action
