Hail Caesar – Gilgenburg 1410

Saturday the local HMGS-South group played a medieval battle at the Dogs of War shop using the Hail Caesar rules.

Gilgenburg Prussia, July 13th, 1410.

On July 13th, two days before the battle of Grunwald/Tannenberg, the Polish-Lithuanian army captured and sacked the town of Gilgenburg (Dabrowno in Poland today). In this hypothetical scenario, the Teutonic Order army arrives to defend Gilgenburg.

When the game ended both sides had lost 4 units (20%) and each side was threatened on the left flank. The Polish-Lithuanian light cavalry division had cleared the way to Gilgenburg.
