On the Isle of Sceapige (2) - Tussle in the Woods

The vikings make another foray, this time towards the centre of the island ...
The saxons are evacuating to the main settlement, taking as much livestock and food as they can; some of the mounted men move foward towards the forest ...
Some saxons lurk in the woods, shooting the occasional arrow ...
The viking are unperturbed and form up and respond to the threat ...
The main body of the vikings move forward to take the hill while the others move through the forest ..
A bit of  'to and fro' for both sides, but the vikings are doing better ...
The vikings take the hill and push the rest of the saxons out of the woods ...
The mounted saxons come to the aid of their beleaguered comrades...
After a hard fight the saxons withdraw, the vikings hold their ground - they have won this day ..

  1. It was a valiant attempt by the locals to hold fof that horde, but who can blame them for falling back under the onslaught? Time the local thegn to call out the fjord.

    I love your rocky ground terrain, background pictures and variety of trees - they all combine beautifully to really set the scene.

    Looking forward to more Tidders!
