The early moves saw the Khitan's rack up a bundle of momentum tokens from their superior shooting. In return the Japanese were ineffective (but we made a mistake and gave the Khitan's a 2+ save when it should have been 3+ as they cannot benefit from their shield whilst shooting).

The Japanese right flank was under pressure. The retainers fled under sustained bow fire. The bushi cavalry retreated to avoid further losses.

The battle lines clashed in the centre and the Japanese managed to hold up the Khitan juggernaut whilst the Bushi cavalry on the left flank pushed back the Khitan heavy cavalry.

This was a game to get a feel for how the Khitans played so we decided to call it a draw at this point so we could fit another game in the time remaining.
