As an added bonus, my copy of To The Strongest! (a Christmas present from the wife-to-be) arrived yesterday and I had a play around with the rules. I used some slate pieces to mark out the grid (didn't mark every square, just enough to eyeball where they should be) and quickly lined up two forces I thought would be roughly equal. Here's a few pictures I took while playing:


Saladin lines up his troops for battle, pushing the skirmishers forward.


The Crusaders stare down the enemy force.


The Saracen's take the initiative and seize the high ground.


Richard's forces stop the advance dead in it's tracks (aided in no small part by my misinterpretation of the rally rule for the first few turns).


The Crusaders push back to collapse the Saracen lines and surround the last of them taking the victory.

Overall a fun game, got plenty wrong as was learning my way through it, but gave me a good grounding in the rules to read deeper into and play properly next time!

Thanks for letting me know Martin, are they showing now? Fixed the sharing on Google photos on the last few photos. Was it just the ones from the To The Strongest! post that weren't showing or all the armies too?

Glad you enjoyed them!

Very nice, indeed.....I can see all but the second photo.....Grey 'no-entry' sign where I assume that one should be.

Cheers - Phil
