Its the day after our epic refight of Barnet and I am still reeling from what happened last night - a victory was won in the chaos of the fog. The general concensus amongst the players was that it was a great game full of nerve wracking moments, crucial die rolls and a bit of treachery thrown in. Who won? read on....
The set up for this game including the full orders of battle and special rules can be found in the previous post Here
Our game was set up for three players aside with Mark F, Alastair and Tony commanding the Lancastrians. John, Mark K and myself would lead the Yorkists into action and using host's prerogative I elected to play King Edward. Having snatched victory from the jaws of defeat at our refight of Towton could Edward repeat the action?
We determined that the reserves would be equally split across the three forward battles
The game started with thick fog covering the table this would limit movement, shooting and command ranges. To mitigate for the weather most units elected to start as combined units with their leaders attached.
Oxford, supported by Warwick's reserves were starting to chew up the limited forces of Hastings. His saves still were not improving.
