I don't have any troops for the 100 Years War, so I used proxies from my Baccus 6mm Wars of the Roses armies instead. I used the latest version of DBA as the rules for the game.
The English Army:
3 x Blades (dismounted men-at-arms, including the general)
7 x Longbowmen
The French Army:
4 x Knights (Franco-Italians, including the general)
4 x Blades (3 x Franco-Scottish dismounted men-at-arms, 1 x voulgiers)
2 x Fast Archers
1 x Solid Archers (Scots)
1 x Crossbowmen
2 x Spearmen (Pavisiers)
1 x Cavalry (Gross Varlets)
To recreate the conditions of the actual battle, I made the following adjustments:
The French attackers to go first.
+1 to any French attacks in the first turn.
French knights to set-up within charge range of the English.
French mounted troops with a clear path to the English camp must advance and attack it.
|The initial set up (apologies for the photo): the English + "False" French at the top right in front of their camp, the French (and Italians and Scots) advancing from the bottom left.|
|View of the English army from behind the French (left) and Italian (right) knights.|
|View of the French army from behind the English position. Note the separation of the French forces in comparison to the English, obviating the advantage of their superior numbers.|

The French General Assault
|The French regroup, preparing a general assault using their dismounted knights as the spearhead of the attack.|
A quick game, flowed easily, over in about 40 minutes. I managed to do even worse than the French did in real-life - the scenario advantages I gave them just weren't enough to crack the initially unprepared English line. The longbow/blades combination in DBA is really tough to beat so I need to have a study of the rules to work out how best to do this. Maybe a strong central wedge of dismounted men-at-arms plus other infantry, with archers flanking and slightly withdrawn with the cavalry in reserve? As soon as I have some solid ideas, I'll give this one another go!
