Good Morning Folks
As promised here is the latest battle report from our continuing saga of the Wars of The Roses. Monday night saw myself, Vince and Tony take on the roles of the Yorkists whilst Mark F, Alastair and Stuart lead the line for the Lancastrians. We were refighting the Battle of Tewkesbury.
All the details of the battle including background, set up and orders of battle can be found in the previous post HERE
This was a relatively tight battlefield with the centre dominated by hedgerows and fields.
Our game opened with the usual maneuver phase which was cut short when the Yorkist commanders realised they should be battering the Lancastrians with their artillery before the enemy closed.
In the far distance of the picture below the Yorkist guns opened fire on the advancing enemy, across the field the Lancastrians poured forward to secure the hedgeline.
