Hail Caesar Saxons v. Saxons

As prep for our big game on 2nd September at Partizan (do come along and say hello) Scrivs and I arranged to play soldiers.
Unfortunately I forgot to confirm I was coming so arrived to find Scrivs inexplicably absent. Fortunately, stalwart chap that he is, he abandoned Mrs Scrivs on the sofa and legged it round at the drop of a hat and we were able to play. Sorry Mrs Scrivs.

Unfortunately I don't have time to write this up proper like and the pictures I took were a bit rubbish (yellowy light and blurriness does not show off soldiers to best effect).

Suffice it to say that Saxons versus Saxons gave a somewhat unsubtle and unsurprisingly brutal conflict.
At the end of which Scrivs had two formed units left and as I had but a single formed unit remaining I was forced to yield the field.
However the main aim was to re-familiarise ourselves with the rules and it was useful from that respect. Hail Caesar once again gave us a good, fast flowing and fun game and Scrivs was a splendid (if rather tired) opponent as always.
