Frederic lll v Anthony the Bastard of Burgundy

Had a great game last night 28mm and only 300pts a side. Ralph's Imperials v my Burgundians....just so brutal. Every time I play this period I feel like I've really been in a fight,  just the total seesawing bloody catastrophe you would expect. It had everything ....heavy artillery carving up large pike blocks....crushing plate armoured cavalry charges....units getting pushed back and dying at the feet of friendly formations....massed hand gunners standing toe to toe with long bow and commanders getting butchered with their men.........superb ! what more could you ask for ?
Burgundians managed to scrounge a victory out of the day but they were exhausted by the end of it all.....most of the remaining troops were left on single break points.
