Lion Rampant: Death and Taxes

Its tax collection day in the frozen north. Well half the table is frozen, looking a bit like elderscrolls games when changing areas. The Scenario has 6 tax tokens scatterd around the middle of the table. One token worth 3 VPs, three tokens worth 2 VPs, and two tokens worth 1 VP. The player who leaves the table (any edge) with the most Tax VPs wins.

The 30 pt Forces:
The Order: 4 x mounted serjeants
1 x Crossbowmen
1 x foot knights (leader)
1 x foot serjeants

The Pagans (Samogitians, Yatvingians, or Curonians):
2 x mounted Serjeants with bows
1 x archers
1 x Ferocious foot
2 x foot knights

In a marvelous shift battlefield luck, my Baltic Pagans make three entire turns (one unit short of 4 turns) of full activations. Meanwhile the Order's Forces had above average activations, nothing to complain about.

 Im too lazy to write this up, and it was a quick affair. I quickly picked up 6 tax VPs (the minimum number needed to gain victory). My adversary realized soon enough that I had the VPS to win but it was largely too late. I sent my ferocious foot forward like a balistic missile towards either his foot serjeants or his xbows, lucky for me they drove into the crossbows. Saving my forces from dreaded xbow fire. Other than the ferocious foot, my leader and his guard clashed with some mounted serjeants for 1 VP tax token.  That was all the action. My ferocious foot died though, they always seem to do that.
