So I've updated the tournament to 12 players, which may mean the scenario has changed slightly.

Round 3 - Basing- 22 January 871

RiverWanderer (Saxons) - 5 banners won, 27 blocks lost
alecrespi (Vikings) - 4 banners won, 21 blocks lost

Both sides consolidated their lines whilst light troops on the flanks, especially the Saxons,  started harassing those enemy within range. The end of this phase saw the sides within striking distance of each other and the Vikings well-supplied with leadership tokens after a flurry of scout cards.

The Saxons  made the first attack, advancing their line against the Viking left and pressing on in the face of strong Viking counter-attacks. The organisation of both sides started to dissolve, with Saxons pursuing vulnerable Vikings on the far Viking left, others trying to avoid the strong Viking centre and a sole archer unit continuing to harass the Viking right. For their part, the Vikings were positioning for a Clash of Shields. It came eventually against the Saxon right. Unlucky rolls frustrated the attack and the Vikings, depleted from ranged combat and the first round of melee, found themselves the worse, giving the Saxons a little respite.

Now in the final phase, both sides were pursuing vulnerable units against their opponent's baseline on the left of the board. In this way, each closed to the final banner. At the end, a desperate Foot Onslaught by the few remaining good Saxon centre units got to the final banner on what was surely their last chance.

Thanks to Ale for a close fought game and an exciting start to the tournament.

Round 2 - VIK03 Ashdown 871

mk20336 (Saxons) 5 banners won, 18 blocks lost
alecrespi (Vikings) 2 banners won, 22 blocks lost

The game developed pretty historically with Saxons obliterating gradually Vikings left and the game deciding - with couple of wild rolls - in the center. Those Vikings scenarios play completely different from usual Medieval, you need to gradually build your position and the numbers of dice rolled are not so high. A welcome change from cavalry set-ups which can be decided after 3 cards play.

And thanks to Ale for playing on short notice!
