War of the Roses Wargame Rules- Record Sheet

Here is the next instalment for the Are You Being Serfed rules, a record sheet.

This should keep the need to have any reference markers etc. on the table to a minimum. The only exception being possibly reload markers for artillery.

For this we use the arrow clumps from the Perry box sets placed behind the base and remove one for each reload actioned.

 

Pretty self-explanatory but any issues drop me a line.

Below you will find a pdf version and an Excel version for you to edit if you wish.

Legionary 2015 Update

For this show which is my local I was hoping to put on a war of the Roses Game. In fact I had decided to try and do Bosworth. As the show is now only a few months away I have taken stock of where I am. I have to admit I am a long way off having all the troops ready. Too distracted with other eras and a new job. With this in mind I am working on a slightly different approach and intend to do an encounter game. it will probably involve most of the troops I have. Below are a few shoots of the stuff I have painted over the last month or so.

So what have we?

Henry Holland, 3rd Duke of Exeter (27 June 1430 – September 1475), As an Exeter boy myself  born and breed, I just had to have a battle representing him. I currently have a small command base on foot, mounted to come, 1 unit of bills and another of Archers. this will probably increase to 2 of archers.

The figures are:

Archers – Perry Plastics

Bills – Old Glory

Command – Foundry. these are smaller in height when compared to the others so put each figure on a small base to lift them up then hid it with the textured base. all of my units are made up of 3 bases 60mm x 60mm.

Burgundian Crossbows

These have been sat on the paint table for about a year half finished.

The figures are Perry plastics with the Pavaise artwork transfers by Little Big Men Studios http://www.littlebigmenstudios.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1

I might stick a few arrows in to the pavaises and surrounding ground for dramatic effect.

That’s all for now.
