 We had a game of  Crescent and Cross/Saga at the club using mine Chris and Rory's figures.
We had a 4 way free for all between Saracens which Chris took Normans that i took Crusaders that Rory took and Vikings which Mick took.
 The winner would be decided by points per figure killed.

Warlord = 5 points per figure
Knights/Hirdmen= 2 points per figure
Sergeants/Bondi/Warriors = 1 point per figure
Peasants/Thralls/ = 1 point per 2 figures

 Each side started at a different corner

The Normans

The Vikings

The Crusaders

The Saracens

All four factions advance.

The Saracen cavalry advance towards the Crusader infantry.

Seeing the Crusader cavalry advancing on them the Vikings offer their entire force in response.

Realising that the Vikings attentions are diverted the Normans move in on their flank.

The Normans advance on the Viking rearguard unit.

The Saracen cavalry change targets and move to attack the Crusader cav.

The Saracen warriors and archers move to secure a nearby building.

As the Saracen cavalry advance they are fired upon by the Crusader archers.

And suffer one casualty.

The Crusader cavalry reform to face the oncoming Saracens.

A unit of Norman knights attacks the Viking rearguard.

Killing four but losing two of their own.

The Remaining Vikings are forced back.

The Saracen general and his bodyguard charge the Crusader archers.

One archer is killed without reply.

The generals bodyguards attack the Crusader infantry and manage to kill two but they also lose two in the process.

The remaining infantry finish off the last bodyguard.

Which paves way for the Crusader Lord and his guard to attack the now undefended general.

But the general fights bravely and pushes the enemy back.

The Other unit of Saracen cavalry move to protect their General but are intercepted by a unit of their Crusader counterparts.

The Crusaders inflict one casualty without losing any of their own.

The Viking Warlord and his Hearthguard engage the Norman knights.

The Knights are killed before they can bring their weapons to bear.

The Norman Lord prepares to lead his remaining forces into the battle.

The Norman lord leads the charge into the Viking horde.

He loses two of his knights but kills 3 Vikings in return.

The Norman archers open fire killing another Viking warrior.

The Saracen and Crusader cavalry reengage and the Saracen general also charges into the fray.

Inspired by their general the Saracens emerge victorious, killing 2 Crusaders and losing only one man.

The Saracen general retreats but his men reengage the now heavily outnumbered Crusader cavalry.

The Crusaders amazingly defeat the enemy killing two of their number and forcing them back. 

The Saracen archers occupy a building and take up defencive positions.

The Crusader lord and his bodyguards attack the Saracen general.

The General is defeated but two of his men sacrifice themselves to save him.

The General retreats.

The Norman lord and his knights continue their fight against the Viking Warlord and his Hirdmen.

The Fight goes badly for the Normans as a knight is killed and the Lord is forced to retreat. The Vikings suffer no losses.

Despite horrific odds 2 Viking warriors attack the Norman archers.

But they are easily overwhelmed and killed.

The Viking Warlord and his men attack the last remaining knight.

Easily killing him.

The Saracen cavalry regroups with the infantry.

A unit of Viking warriors attack the Norman archers.

2 Normans are killed and the rest are pushed back. The Vikings lose 1 man.

The Viking warlord tries to attack the Norman Lord but his men form a protective circle around him.3 of the Viking Hirdmen are killed and the warlord is forced to retreat. 1 Norman soldier is killed.

The Norman soldiers quickly attack another unit of Viking warriors

But they are badly beaten losing 4 men without reply.

The Norman archers cover their comrades retreat inflicting 2 casualties on the Vikings.

At this point we ran out of time and after tallying up the points the Normans emerged victorious with the Vikings close behind.

Thanks For Reading
