That's an impressive array of miniatures. I hope someone gets good photos for us non Saluters!

We only managed 4 turns over the as we were talking to visitors to the show. I think Great Escape Games (who sold the rules at the show) got a lot of business from this demo as did Tiny Wargames who supplied the mat.

The head of the caravan.


The Crusaders prepare to defend the pilgrims.


End of turn 2


The Hospilitars in the thick of it!


Turn 3














The Templars and their Sergeants have destroyed two Seljuk Cavalry units and their pursuits takes them into the Heavy Foot




Turn 4 sees the Templars destroyed due to bad Dice rolling.


The Hospilitars manage to punch through the center


Christian left flank destroys a camel unit!


Seljuk Casualties, end of turn four. Orange Division lost 25 points 1 point short of breaking


Purple division lost 12 points, 4 points short of 1st army morale test


Christians only lost White division 3 points and Red division 12 points (and two doughnuts!

Fantastic!  :-*

Salute was a worthy venue for that set-up of wonderful miniatures and bases.

Too bad about the donuts...  :'(

Many thanks for your kind comments chaps. This has been a three year labour of love to the memory of a dear friend who passed away very suddenly and who loved this period.
