Hail Caesar – Medieval AAR

February 11, 2017

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Hail Caesar game. The fictitious encounter was set after the battle of Grunwald (or Tannenberg) in 1410. Surviving Teutonic Order forces are attempting to escape to the west. Polish–Lithuanian Union forces block the retreat while others arrive in the rear. 

After about four hours of play the casualties were about even but very heavy. The remaining Order units seemed to have no chance of getting safely to the west.

Saturday the local HMGS-South group played a game of Hail Caesar at the Dogs of War shop.

The fictitious Battle of Schwetz, June 1309, takes place in what is now northern Poland and is between the Teutonic Order and the forces of the Polish King Władysław I. Following the ‘takeover’ of Danzig, the Teutonic Order is on the march to take the nearby city of Schwetz. The Teutonic Order is intercepted by Polish forces outside the city.
