Spanish standard bearer from Gripping beast.
El Cid campeador, again Gripping Beast character figure, love the cloak.
The Moors had 5 units of light javelin armed cavalry and one of horse archers, plus 3 units of mercenary knights, add this to five units of medium foot an 3 units of archers.
The Christians had 5 units of heavy knights and two of light javelin armed cavalry plus 5 units of heavy foot and 2 of medium foot and three units of crossbows plus one of slingers.
The Christians had the edge in quality and numbers but the Moors had a more flexible force.
The Moorish Horse drove off the Christian light cavalry on the right flank and pushed back the crossbows, they were however unable to make any headway on the left against a force of Christian Knights.
Meanwhile in the middle the battle swung back and forth with the main foot forces and the remaining Christian Knights taking on El Cids Merenaries.
A fun first outing for the Spanish forces ad a very enjoyable game. Thanks Andy, Chris C, Chris F, and Mark.
Partizan on Sunday. See some of you there I hope on our Bagamayo game.
