Koriyama Castle 1540

In early September, Motonari sent a small group of Ashigaru across the Tajii to provoke the Amako into attacking. When the Amako troops came out to drive them back, the Ashigaru fled back across the river to the safety of the castle. The Mori force, that was waiting in Ambush, then took the Amako soldiers by surprise in their flank. The Amako were immediately routed and fled back to their camp.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

Forgotten how wild Samurai Battles can get.
Amako won this 4-3, but the banner toll was 3 dead leaders (2-1), 2 dead units (2-0) and 2 escaped over the river (0-2)

Lots of little rules that have been forgotten are coming back. The extra Leader Check when attacking with a Ninja leader accounted for the high leader death toll.
