I still wanted to try using the Battlelore battle rules and movement, but instead of using the movement cards, I decided to use my movement dice. It is for a set of rules that each side moved 4 units per turn . To fight solo battles, I made a dice that has one 3, three 4s, one 5, and one 6 on it. That way you never know how many units you'll get to move on the next turn. So once again (and for the last time for a while) Agincourt was fought again.
This time the battle was a close run thing. The English made more use of the woods, thereby cutting down the French attack strength. In the end the English carried the day, taking 5 units to the French 3. Here are some photos of the action.

Now to work on a way to build armies based on a point system, such as the system used in "Hordes of the Things".
