Fillippo Baglioni, Condottieri mercenary leader in the employ of the city of Altoforte has decided to attack the poor burghers of neighbouring city, Borgonuovo, which, in desperation hires the German mercenary, Hans Gruebenhagen
Here is the belligerent, Fillippo Baglioni
His troops mass on the hills facing Borgonuovo
And here we see Gruebenhagen giving last minute instructions to his crossbowmen and gunners
These are the few cavalry Gruebenhagen has to hold the line
Here we can see the gallant troops of Gruebenhagen defending the hill line and village as the enemy advance
Here we can see the town Briganti defending a village
And these few professional soldiers advance to protect their right flank
Vicious attacks are launched across the length of the battlefield
But their brave defenders put up a good fight
Il Tellio, the local publican hopes business will not be interrupted ?
For so long, the plucky Borgonuovans fought off the attacks of the evil Altofortians
Wave after wave were repulsed
but in the face of such insurmountable odds
the end was never in doubt
It was with great reluctance that Hans Grubenhagen bade farewell to Borgonuovo ... but after all, he has just been made a better offer by Castelvecchio !
The gates of Castelvecchio
Well, hello ladies !
I'm sure his trusty Landsknechts will know where to find him ...
