|French soldiers attempt to repel a Burgundian landing on the Flemish coast.|
|Flemish and English mercenaries in the service of the Duke of Burgundy sail |
|Flemish gunners wade onto the beach.|
|French malice rush to occupy the farm house and barn.|
|Unfortunately, the trees mask the French from the English bowmen.|
|Flemish gunners take the high ground...|
|The Flemings are charged before they can reload...|
While my Flemings managed to drop a few men-at-arms, their guns do take time to reload...and that's why I should have disembarked pikemen and halberdiers.
|...and the hill is carried by the heavier French infantry.|
|The lightly armed Flemish gunners cannot stand against the French|
|The Fog parts to reveal a French Cog on the caravel's port bow. |
To late to make sail, the English must repel boarders.
|Pinned by the French cog, the English archers must fight to the seaward.|
|French knights and sergeants take the forepeak of the caravel|
and work back along the waist.
|The advance across the caravel's deck is supported by Italian crossbowmen|
and French archers.
My remaining halberdiers and gunners scramble up the chains and onto the caravel's decks, but they are no match for the French knights. My remaining Burgundian knight is overwhelmed and hacked to pieces at the ladder to the poop deck. With no leadership or promise of pay, the remaining English and Flemish mercenaries beg for mercy from the French knights. As they are not nobles and won't command a hefty ransom, so they are not likely to receive it (mercy, that is).
|The English and Flemings beg for mercy.|
