Set-up:
Today we are using a 72MU by 48MU board.  1 MU is equal to 1 inch. 

Terrain is set-up per the rules found in the main Fury of the Northman rules and the objectives were set-up using the method outlined in the scenario.

Square 1-3 is the Viking side, while side 4-6 is the Irish side of the board.
Square 1 = Hill
Square 2 = Grove
Square 3 = 2- level hill
Square 4= Hill
Square 5 = Hill
Square 6 = Stone walls

You can see the objectives, spread out in the form of piles of crates/chests or cattle.  They are just outside the Irish deployment zones.



You can see more pictures and read the full battle report on the blog.  Hope you like it!

Eh what? When did this new ruleset appear?
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

I'm from the NE of England and it's funny reading "heedless charge" which essentially means headless charge! which I suppose is what you were getting at with the name in a way :)
