A couple of weeks ago, a friend invited me over to have a game of Lion Rampant. We played Agincourt, a scenario that may be a bit of a challenge for a ruleset such as LR. However, the result was shockingly historical (for the French) – the French were annihilated by the English archers.
Very interesting use of LR. Looks like perhaps the bows get too much opportunity to get their arrows down to make it a viable scenario. I wonder what the outcome would be if you used the historical plan (your first game) and advanced with everything at once – so it would still be in three lines or waves … but the English would not be able to defeat each line in such detail, with some of the second line and perhaps most of the third line actually making it to contact.
