Mortiem et Gloriam at Campaign

A five game weekend of glorious MeG action.
Campaign is run by my local wargames society, and since I've been spearheading MeG there since the playtest days, this was our second year of the competition. Campaign works with three player teams, each playing in a theme.

This year's themes were 'Rise and Fall of Carthage','The Crusades', and 'The Eastern Lists'.

We had swapped roles, this time I was the Tudors to Mark playing the Samurai, an army he had tried before vs Paul, and had some success, so this would be interesting... And it was! The Armies  Not QUITE the army I'm taking to Campaign next weekend, but close enough, A force of very good cavalry, and very good foot, packing enough shooting, barricades and spears to give anyone a headache. By letting Mark use it, it will allow me to fault find in my forces for next weekend.
Mark is an excellent player, who can take any force and use it to his advantage. All figures from the Pendraken Samurai range, except the general, who came from Dark Sword (long story, best not to ask).

The Tudors, based on the forc…
