Clemens Revenge

After two defeats at the hands of Frithuwald during raids, Clemens redeems himself in a pitched battle ...

 
The Saxon horde is on the rampage again

They dash forwards full of confidence
 
Especially as their Champion forced back the Romano British Champion in single combat
 
The Saxon confidence was now sky high

But Clemens men were not too disheartened
 
His forces organised

He sends forward his best troops to block the gap between woods and broken ground
 
The Saxon warriors are quick to advance

One group of Saxons decide to go through the marsh ahead of their archers

 
They attack the Romano-British levy


Which surprisingly holds firm

And pushes back the Saxons into the marsh

First blood to Clemens' men
 
Next they charge Clemens' elite troops by the woods

But the British warrior shieldwall unexpectedly breaks forward to join in 
 
Now more Saxons rush forward to join in the melee


The British hold them
 
Casualties mount on both sides

But one group of British warriors breaks leaving a hole in the line

Clemens orders a retreat to regroup and calm the men
 

The Saxons surge forwards exultant

They form shieldwall
 
and charge again

Clemens gets three units into the fray

Both sides lose more men
 
Meanwhile, in the broken ground, Saxons tried  to attack the British skirmishers but found themselves attacked by Levy men instead
 
Frithuwald breaks his shieldwall to send forwards his elite against the Levy

Battered, they still hang on
 
Spotting his chance, Clemens pounces on the other leaderless elite unit

and they are defeated and rout
 
At this point, Frithuwald sees the game is up and flees too, hoping that his one intact unit can evade the Levy to get back to camp.
 
So despite his poor start as a Warrior Lord, Clemens now finds himself the hero !  More men will surely flock to his banner next time.
