I just had him set up the terrain, told him where and how to set up his army, and then how to play his cards for each unit. Sigh. I was using my new Supreme Teutonic Knights (which I am still trying hard not to be disappointed in, heh heh), and he was using the Toy Major 'True Legends' fantasy figures from Toys R Us. I kept the game intentionally simple, with only two rounds of combat, removing a single figure to keep score rather than using points.
The companies of footmen on the left flank and vanguard fared poorly in the first exchange, both losing in their respective melees. The heavy knights on my right flank however, prevailed in neat fashion.
Things grew more dire for the knights in the second exchange of arms. Both the left flank and van were defeated a second time this day, and routed. The knights were victorious on the right flank once more, but facing a possible encirclement, wheeled north and were forced to withdraw.
