The game
He stood back to shoot, essentially stranding my men who took many casualties and many turns to reach the enemy.

I almost pulled it back when my HQ got into combat but it was too little too late.

Result: Loss

Learning points
  • My army is far too slow.
  • My men are too few; I got unlucky with a handful of saves and it decimated my army.
  • Not enough long range weapons to threaten units dodging combat.
