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.

Another War of the Roses update

A bit of a push on over the weekend.

Below are some shots of some more units I finished over the weekend.

Scots or French mercenary pike block

These are mainly Old Glory figures with a few Foundry in the front rank.

Perry Wagons

One of the house rules I have added is the ability for units to run low on ammo. This add a -1 on their ability to hit. I decided it would look good on the table to have some sort of ammo resupply. So if these carts are moved next to a low on ammo unit they may restock on arrows etc.

I have given the wagoner an outfit in a battles livery colour without any specific badges.

Henry Holland, 3rd Duke of Exeter (27 June 1430 – September 1475)

As I stated in an Earlier blog I had to do a mounted command version. well here he is. These are Foundry figures with a home made flag. All I have left to do is the basing.

Long Service Award

A bit of a late blog but with getting the game ready for Legionary I have let the update slip.
Ten days to the day from placing the order, over 25kgs of metal arrived.
Like a kid in a sweet shop I dived straight in and found the following:
 3 off American Infantry, Leather Shako March Attack
2 off American Infantry, Summer Field Dress March Attack
4 off American Command, Leather Shako
2 off American Militia
1 off Artillery Crew in Shako 
1 off 7th New York Dragoons with Command
1 off  5th Maryland Volunteers
1 off Mounted High Command incl. Jackson
2 off New Orleans Freed Men of Color
1 off Light Dragoons with Command
1 off Canadian Voltigeurs
1 off West Indian Regiments
1 off British Marines
1 off Glengarry Light Infantry Skirmishing
1 off Deployed Rocket Troop
1 off 6lb Guns
I also ordered a few packs to bolster my Scottish Wars of Independence armies. These will bulk out my schiltrons which are currently made up of EBOB and early Citadel/Ral Partha miniatures. 
2 off Scottish Spearmen
1 off Scottish Dismounted Knights
1 off Scottish Highlanders & Isle men
and
1 off English bowmen
I must say that I am very impressed with the 1812 figures, have not opened any Scottish War of Independence packs yet. The pose variations and detail is great. From the packs I have opened there seems to be about 5 poses on average, excluding command if included. Then each pose will also have a number of head variations.
While unpacking, I discovered the British rockets crews and I had to open, prime and start painting. These are very animated and I just love the faces. I will finish the rockets in the next couple of weeks hopefully, so will update when they are all based.

I also started to paint some of the Canadian Voltigeurs. With there being 30 in a pack and using my KGCAWO rules they will only fight in a skirmish formation. Therefore I can get 3 figures to a base and have 5 bases to a unit. Here are the first couple of bases.

Here is a picture of old glory compared against the foundry 1812 range and Knuckle Duster. I think old glory and knuckle duster are fully interchangeable. Foundry are a little smoother in style than the angled edges of Old Glory and Knuckleduster but all have great facial detail. Foundry are smaller and slimmer but I suppose the old figure intermingled would not matter or you could have whole units of them. The only issue with that is the lack of pose variation.

Here is a picture of some foundry painted.

I guess that next years demo game for Legionary 15 will be the War of 1812 and probably Crysler’s Farm.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Free Jacobite Rebellion Rules

 

Having a bit of a tidy up over the weekend of my old laptop and came across a set of old wargame rules I wrote about 12 years ago, having fallen for a range of figures from Front Rank. Unfortunately my collection has gone but at least you may find the rules of some interest. We used them for a demo game at Plymouth Association of Wargamer’s show (PAW) and won best in show. Browsing over them has nearly tempted me to get back into the era. I think a smaller scale if I did, so any suggestions as to a good range? If so, please leave a comment.

The rules also included army lists for that random feel, painting guide and sheets of printable flags to help get you started.

Enjoy the rules.
