I have taken the opportunity between map projects and the bank holidays to work on my promised Dark Ages scenario booklet, the promise being to myself as I do not like to say I will do something then not do it. I am happy to say it is 95% done, I have a few maps to add and a bit of tarting up with photographs then it is off to Wargame Vault, I suspect by next weekend at the latest.
I have agonised over the title, I was going with Oathsworn but although good, it is not an actual word as far as I know, so I looked through some old Herioc Poems and picked the above line, although I might change that to "A Struggle of Standards" I am unsure of which is best.
I did not manage ten battles in the end, but eight, which give nine scenarios, so it is not a bad compromise. There are many other battles of course but all we really have is the name and if lucky, who fought there, I deliberately stayed away from Hastings, who needs told how to fight Hastings, I was tempted with Stamford Bridge, but in the end I settled on Gate Fulford to close the book.
The graphic above is not great quality as I could not get a copy of a whole page from my typesetting software with the background included, so this is a scan of a .pdf.
