A large Crusade invasion

Post by nevermore » Mon Jun 25, 2012 8:48 pm

The First Crusade (1096–1099) was a military expedition by Roman Catholic Europe to regain the Holy Lands taken in the Muslim conquests of the Levant (632–661), ultimately resulting in the recapture of Jerusalem in 1099. It was launched on 27 November 1095 by Pope Urban II with the primary goal of responding to an appeal from Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos, who requested that western volunteers come to his aid and help to repel the invading Seljuq Turks from Anatolia. An additional goal soon became the principal objective—the Christian reconquest of the sacred city of Jerusalem and the Holy Land and the freeing of the Eastern Christians from Islamic rule.

The game was arranged with 14 players, two which controlled the game with help with the objectives and questions on the rules.The game was 28mm around 1000 figures and 26 wagons
this was the first part of the invasion, next week i will post up the 2nd game which was played in
the afternoon with the Christians attacking the walls of Jerusalem with tons of seige equipment as
it was 22 foot in lenght, great game and a great laugh, everybody was in high spirits and roll on
for October for another large game.
