El cid game
Just got back and decided to post some of the photos I took of the game. An enjoyable game it was. With the valley divided in two, we split our forces with jinetes and light troops leading the way. We managed to catch the almoravids flat footed, reaching the plain and routing their horse. As our infantry managed to spill onto the plain they suffered heavy casualties to massed bow fire. The boys did us proud eventually closing with the enemy and breaking their resistance. We didnt have it all our own way, nearly loosing the supplies on a couple of occasions. Our knights proved devastating in attack, but despite all that armour didnt help as archers seemed to pick them of at will. The battle ended with el cid killing ben yusuf in one on one combat.
