Welcome to the biggest War of the Roses battle that the Shed has seen so far in our journey through this factional struggle for the English throne. This is a massive wargame as far as the shed is concerned and is the culmination of many hours of modelling, painting, and research.
This series of games all started last year when one of my regular shed visitors (think it was Alastair) recommended our next big game should be a partnership. In other words we all contribute forces to the big game. Twelve months and a pandemic later 1500 plus figures took to the table. I will add that this is not our entire collective WOTR collection as many of our units such as Pikes, Cavalry and Irish did not feature.
The plan was simple, start at 11am on a Saturday and play through to 5pm. There was a planned break for lunch and a post game barbecue for the participants and their partners. With a barrel of homebrew ale ready for consumption what could go wrong?
As per previous battles the set up etc can all be found in the previous post HERE
So the scene was set for a multiplayer all day medieval blood-fest. The forces of York (Myself as Edward IV, John as Warwick, and Mark K as Fauconberg) facing the Lancastrians of Mark F and Alastair
