Following our epic game of Towton on Saturday (as mentioned this will be published along with the others in chronological order) we turned our attention to the rather smaller affair of Mortimer's Cross. For part 1 of this battle head HERE
Once again this battle was refought using the excellent Never Mind the Bill Hooks ruleset.
Unlike many of the WOTR battles Mortimer's Cross is relatively straight forward. A marginally superior Yorkist force clashes with a Lancastrian army in a valley just outside Wales. Its a straight forward 'bash em up' game.
With the two sides matched up for a big fight It was decided the Yorkists would be lead by John as the Earl of March (technically now Duke of York since his dad copped it at Wakefield) and with his left and right battles commanded by myself and Mark K. Facing us were our usual Lancastrians - Alastair and Mark F.
With much of the Lancastrian force dead, daunted or fled the Victory is awarded to Edward, Earl of March
A return to St Albans in our next battle....
