    Back in February of this year, when the weather was chilly and damp (unlike this balmy almost-May Springtime we’re getting in the UK right now…?) I headed off to Athens to take in some local gastronomy, hit a few museums, drink some local beer and wine, attend a Greek Super League football match … oh, and play a bit of ADLG at a “crusaders” themed event held by the Strategikon Club in Athens too.

    The gaming parts of this epic weekend saw a rather unusual Later Crusader army take to the field, based around the army commanded by Richard The Lionheart (“Coeur du Lion”) at Arsuf and other rather defensive battles, taking on a variety of Feudal opponents across 5 games over 2 days.

    This saw a wall of well protected Crusader spearmen, supported by crossbows attempt to lure successive opponents either to their doom in a vain and futile charge, or to stunning success as the enemy rode down the quivering Crusader sergeants at lance point!

    In all cases the action was epic and brutal, and (of course…) the post-game criticism from Hannibal was even more so!

    In a post-event coda, these reports also feature a video walk-through of the Athens Archeological Museum (with some stunning Mycenean stuff), the Greek Military Museum (from antiquity to the near-present day) and a pop-up museum with relics and remains from the decisive battle of Charonea, where Philip established Macedonian control over the Greek peninsula with his defeat of the other Theban-led City States.

    All of the reports, including the usual captions and nonsense are now posted on Madaxeman.com.

    I am happy you had a good time. Next time also visit the National History Museum and the Naval Museum at Pireaus.
