Battle of Sodbury Marsh

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of entertaining a few friends with a 15mm War of the Roses battle. It was a fictional encounter between Edward the IV and the old Earl of Oxford. The rules of choice were A Coat of Steel by the Perfect Captain. I hadn't used the rules for quite some time, however once play was underway the mechanics came back to me. Only one of the players had used the rules before but they all got with the rules pretty well.

I took a few photos with my ipad and I am reasonably pleased with the results. I haven't written up a detailed account of the battle as I am pushed for time. What I can say is the Lancastrians gave them a good shock initially, but after some time the more heavily armoured Royal army began to tell.

A New Year Beckons

Happy New Year to you all! I have been busy over the holiday painting some more of my 15mm collection for an upcoming game on the 11th  January. I will endeavour to take photos and give an after action report. Maybe that should be my new year resolution!
