Post Nagashino 1575 @ Crusade
This battle was a trial run of the game we will put on at Salute if we get a table, although I have to build a proper ridge and some terrain features and we need a few more units along with, most importantly, some vignettes for the commanders, luckily none of which will take too long.. Phew

This battle is known as the Japanese equivalent of Agincourt (theme of Salute) and for the first try out, we just set up and played with no special historical scenario rules. I chose to do this to see how the battle unfolded and after a close game, the battle ended with a historical result, which meant, as I was commanding the Takeda - I lost yet another game :mrgreen:

Thanks to Steve for coming along for the day and providing half the forces - of course its worth mentioning Crusade has a good Bring and Buy (flea market to our US friends) and Steve is not known as the 'Harvester' for nothing :mrgreen:

Note in the pictures the clans Mon (heraldry)are not historically accurate but this did not stop us enjoying our game :D . The Takeda were one of the first clans to paint some contingents with red armour

I should mention - all the miniatures are 'old school' Dixons.

Within the game itself, I charged/advanced the cavalry across the table as fast as was practical - the arquebus fire took a toll but the cavalry got there, defeated some of the ashigaru but fell foul of the Oda samurai before support could arrive.

Looks like a lot of fun. You are welcome to borrow my Samurai for Salute if you need to.
