Random War of the Roses Army Generator

Fed up with balanced games or knowing exactly what you are going to command because you have priced it up to the last point. If so then accept the challenge and throw caution to the wind.

As promised, I have developed a way to generate random armies for you to command or defeat.

While aimed at my rules AYBS recently published on this blog, please feel free to amend the cards to represent any other era or rules you like.

I have done versions for Peninsula War , ECW and AWI eras. I am currently working on versions for ACW and WW2.

Hope you enjoy them.

More War of the Roses

Just a little update on some more painting I have been doing for my game at Legionary 2015 (http://www.exmouthwargames.org.uk/). Below are a few photos of units I have painted in the last month.

I have managed to complete:

1 unit of Old Glory mounted knights- These are very animated figures, including the horses which could be considered a little too thin for my likings but they at least fit in with the foundry metals I have.

2 Artillery bases – These are Front Rank. I have to admit that these are the only front rank figures I have and will be the last for my War of the Roses armies. They are OK figures but so out of scale with any other manufacturer I have, they may not even make it to the table. One base is painted to represent Warwick and the other with the red/black livery will be ideal for Shrewsbury or Northampton.

1 unit of Northern Horse. These are Foundry. These are also done in the  red/black livery so will be ideal for Shrewsbury or Northampton and probably many others. I have decided to not put livery emblems on the figures and to use a Banner. The trick is to wrap the banner around a small tube/pipe and slide it over the standard-bearer’s spear. I have found that a cotton bud with the ends cut off is ideal for this. Then when you need a unit on the oppositions side, just swap banners.

More soon
