I decided to start very small, and over the last couple of nights have gotten in a few turns of a "baby steps" game.
|Raymond of Saint Palais|
To keep track of how Raymond is doing, I will start him out at a 5 on a scale of 1-10, or a "stance rating" of "doing ok so far". Good scenario results will raise his "stance" and bad results will lower it. I will figure out some way to use this to help me plot the course of events. Raymond's full force, which I don't expect to have on the table all at once for a while, will approximate 400 points to begin with, but events can affect this going forward. I have drafted a rough list of his army composition in total, and will use different pieces of it for different games.
Chevauchee, July 1380
|William of Navarrenx|
Raymond's forces have crossed the Adour river at Aire-sur-l'Adour and are headed generally northeast. As one of Raymond's contingents under William of Navarrenx approaches the village of Cazalet, it finds a small enemy force drawn up behind a stream to oppose it. William's goal is to brush aside this blocking force to rendezvous with Raymond beyond Cazalet.
William has 7 units with him at the moment [most troop profiles are from the English list]:
|William's forces at start|
- His household unit of Men at Arms (impetuous) [Gascon MAA]
- Heavy cavalry [English hobilar CM]
- Heavy infantry billmen
- Light infantry spearmen
- Mercenary crossbows
- Skirmishers with short bows
The enemy, led by the local constable [most troop profiles are from the French list]:
- Local Men at Arms (impetuous)
- Heavy infantry
- Two units of local levy/militia infantry
- Crossbows [French T]
|The defenders of Cazalet|
