1 Pike (Expert Foot Serjeants) @ 6
2 Halberds (Fierce Foot) @ 4
1 Handguns (Bidowers) @ 2
1 Crossbows (Bidowers) @ 2
1 Foot Men-at-Arms @ 6
|My Bidowers (left) close but the main attack lags behind.|
My plan as the Swiss was to conduct a delaying action on my left with my Bidowers while attacking on my right with the halberdiers and, more cautiously, in the centre with my pike and Men-at-Arms.
|Casualties mount on my left-hand halberd unit.|
My best and only remaining chance then lay in the centre - Plan B. I wiped out the enemy Crossbows with my Men-at-Arms but the opposing pike went into schiltron. This made the pike-to-pike contest more-or-less even when it would otherwise have been in my favour.
|My main attack is shot to pieces.|
Full marks to Simon for his steady defence. High quality Archers certainly need to be treated with respect.
|Some success for the Swiss but a rather sorry end.|
