Finally i get to play these clansmen!
This is how the Lannister side setup looks like:



And here we see Stark forces awaiting battle:



Stark pushes forward along the road with his foot, and sends the cavalry up the
mountains on each flank. Rickard leads the assault, and i decide to take a chance
and attack him with my clansmen and Shagga, reactivate them and attack again.
I roll lucky enough to get the hits i need beside Rickards toughness, and punish
Stark for exposing his commander. Shagga takes some hits, too, and both my
clansmen units drop to reduced strength. I rain some arrows onto the oncoming
cavalry, with little effect.

This is the board after first round:



The riders of winterfell kill one of my archer units. The Greatjon comes along the
road, and the northern warhost fights my red cav, leaving them at reduced strength,
but still taking some hits by themself in response. Shagga flanks Starks red riders
and uses one of his axe tokens to finish them off.

After round two, the board looks like this:



My archers kill the blue cavalry and cause some losses to the northmen, too. The
Greatjon attacks, but fails to get rid of my own cavalry. Not only does Stark have
bad luck with the dice, i also get to launch a coordinated attack against the Gratjon
with Shagga, rolling double red and double valor. I use another of Shaggas axe
tokens, and the Greatjon is captured, leaving Stark without commanders.

After round three:



Stark has only two units left. I use the last round to clear all remaining foes off
the board. We both agree, that i had some pretty lucky rolls this time, whereas
Stark got bad luck with the dice. Maybe Rickard should not have rushed to the
front, being exposed to Shaggas blows, but anyway Stark did not deserve such
a crushing defeat. We are curious to play this one again, to see whether the
outcome feels more balanced next time.

Awesome!

I see that you aren't using the Bloody Hand banners from the Tribes set. Is that to minimise confusion?

Thanks again for continuing these reports and for adding pictures!

Hiho!
There is a very simple reason for that:
I wanted to paint the banners before putting the stickers on them, and just did not find the time to do so yet.

Will you spray paint them according to Rank, like I have?

We do not have spry paint in red/green/blue, and i am not sure whether we should buy some, but i will at least paint them according to rank. Maybe with some special features for commander banners, or something like that.
