AZTECS vs CONQUISTADORES


Nick has a very large Aztec force and wanted to give them a try against the Spanish. Now to be honest, if I wanted to make it historically accurate, we should flood the table with Aztecs, (which we did), give the Spanish lots of allies such as Tlaxcalans and the like ( which we did) and have about three elements of Spanish ( which we didn't). In fact I was a bit naughty and took an army more reminiscent of the army of Gonsalvo de Cordoba, who gave the French such a hard time in Italy.
So... my army had pikes and knights etc ....  not really reflective of Cortes' motley crew!
Now this didn't phase Nick- he just offered sacrifice to Huitzilopochtli  (try pronouncing that after a few beers) and sent a large colourful horde against the Spanish invaders.
The Sacrifices! ( How gory!!)
