DBMM Teutonic Order vs HYW English

Another Dbmm practice game for Munster. I tried again the Teutons against those sodding hateful vile 100 Years War English. Another good game but as always a frustrating experience against the machine gunners. Terrain allowed the sods to play only half the table and of course I had to setup first. Holsteiner Allies sent on flank march but decided to arrive T2 ie before my two mobile Knight commands got properly into position. After initial 6 the Holsteiners then rolled consistent 1 for Pips and with Inert general this meant only his regular Pip was usable. Unsurprisingly they got shot to pieces. English got lucky shooting at my KnS killing 2 (rolling 1s does make it easy for them !) and weakening my charge. I did manage to get onto flanks of one formation of bow and killed a few but my own losses were too heavy and when second Command broke after Holsteiners the brittle Teutons were beaten. Despite this I have decided to take the Teutons (John kindly lending them) to Munster as I find them a fun army to use.
