Finally a face to face game with my nephew, we dug out our war of the Roses figures and I dragged up some 25mm hundred years war archers, we also ended up with Warwick and Oxford playing on both sides as I have collected both sides whereas Des in a typical display of Lancastrian prejudice only collected the Lancastrians. I set up originally with Barnet and Monken Hadley and realised I didn't have enough buildings so on the morning of the battle I quickly built and based coated 4 more meaner buildings with smaller footprints, in the end we changed the set up but it's given me most of the dark age village I've been planning for a while!
We set up with three battles on each side Oxford on the Lancastrian right,Montague in the centre and Essex on the left all under Warwick,with Monken Hadley on the Lancastrian left and Old Ford Manor House on their right. The Lancastrians were heading south towards Barnet, the plucky Yorkist under Edward were heading north with Clarence in the centre, Gloucester on the right and Hastings on the left. We were using a warhammer ancient battle scenario I had found years ago and printed out, so that there was a special rule for fog and treachery.
The Yorkist side had the first go,Hastings battle declined to go Clarence's veered off in the fog Gloucester's left most unit failed to identify who was in front of them and attacked and caused casualties to the bill and bow unit who returned the favour, it wasn't going terribly well!
