Crisis 2018

It's been about 15 years since I last when to Crisis in Antwerp and all I can say is that it is a lot bigger and better but still is a very friendly show. On to the games that caught my eye

Arriving on a cool morning


Our game, provide by the Alde Garde with participation by the Lance & Longbow society. It was the battle of Arcen 1511. a what-if encounter from the Guelders Wars


The Guelders forces


The Habsburg forces, on the extreme right a group of English mercenaries about to attack the fortified manor house of Huys


battle is joined


A nice idea from Peter of adding Doppelsöldner to the front of the pike bases.

After a hard days fighting the victory was awarded to the Guelders forces.
