...the Normans lost Priority, and Perry moved Bergthor into combat with Roland... which did not end well for the Norman duke. Bergthor won the combat and with a roll of "6" to wound, Roland fell valiantly on the field of honour (let's not dwell too much on the fact that he was legging it).
An excellent game with some real tension and momentum swings back and forth. At first it appeared that the Normans were sunk as the Vikings really were overpowering them at the foot of the hill. Then the knights arrived and made mincemeat of the Vikings facing them, taking some pressure off Roland's group, who then made a break for it. Rollie took a pretty good shot at escape, too, winning some key Priority rolls and using Heroic Moves when he didn't. Unfortunately his luck finally ran out in a rather cinematic fashion!
Thanks to the lads for coming out for the game, I had a great time!
