  4. 4. Armor is vital because it protects you from getting killed.<br />Armor is very expensive to buy.<br />They have to fit perfectly, or things could go very wrong, like getting killed or injured.<br />The nicer your armor was, the higher class you were.<br />It was about 50 pounds, heavy, but light enough to allow you to fight.<br />Made out of garments, chain mail, and iron plates.<br />Covered the most vulnerable parts of the body.<br />Armor <br />
  5. 5. Sabatons- covered the feet<br />Greaves- plates that covered the calves and ankles<br />Poleyns- plates that protected the knee<br />Cuisses- plates that covered the thighs<br />Spurs- attached to the knights heel to help the horse obey your commands more easily<br />Besagues- defends the armpits<br />Rerebraces- protect the upper arm<br />Vanbraces- protect the lower arm<br />Hand Armor- gloves with metal plates that protect the knuckles<br />Armor Continued<br />

  7. 7. Rehearse battling against each other before the real thing<br />Leave 60+ soldiers to guard the castle<br />Send ships loaded with canons a day before the battle to the opposing manor<br />Make sure you have gunpowder, because any poorly trained knight can win with gunpowder<br />Preparing for battle<br />
  8. 8. Siege the Castle<br />You attack the castle from all sides<br />Offensive strategies<br />

  10. 10. Used engines to attack, engineers found weak spots to attack.<br />Trebuchet<br />Ballista<br />Catapult<br />Mangonel<br />Battering ram<br />Saige tower<br />When attacking, make the opposing team surrender.<br />Offensive Tools<br />
  11. 11. We will take captives and torture them for information on how to easily defeat them, and remember, we have no mercy… <br />The chair of torture- spikes…<br />Dunking- dunk you under water<br />Tearing of the limbs- tear each of<br />your limbs one by one<br />Tortures<br />
  12. 12. Pre-battle planning to prepare for the real thing, fighting with uneven numbers, on horse and off horse. <br />Keep a good 60 or more soldiers back to protect the castle from invasion, send the rest to the scene<br />Send ships with cannons to attack the opposing castle, use naval skills to take down the castle <br />Use gunpowder (not in guns) for cannons and bombs, any poorly trained knight could win with gunpowder <br />Take captives and torture them for information <br />Have a variety of knights, foot soldiers, and archers <br />Fighting Strategies<br />
  13. 13. Try to split up the formations by enticing one side to come somewhere and the other goes to the other side <br />Use pike men to kill footmen <br />AVOID HASTY RETREAT! Try to make the opposing men to make a hasty retreat, it will make it easier to kill them <br />Archers protect the front of our men<br />Fighting Strategies Continued<br />
