After a gruelling slog through the traffic on the M5 and M6 I got home late on Thursday. One day of family jobs meant I could escape to Triples to join the Lance & Longbow Society for the Battle of Baugé 1421. I took the part of Thomas Duke of Clarence with a dispersed English force atacking the combined French/Scots army.
Initial positions with French (left) and Scottish (right) reinforcements entering the table. The rest of the Scots are around Baugé.
English forces marching up the road, Clarence was impetuous, so I was worried that he would attack the Scottish schiltrons, but luckily throughout the entire game he remained calm and collected.
A plan comes together, leaving the Scots to the archers, I lead the English cavalry in a successful attack on the isolated French command of la Fayette (partly thenks to some skillful dice rolling by Andrew's son Charlie who was passing by)
Closing position with a conclusive victory, the Scots are bottled up in Baugé after an anxious moment when one of my archer units was stomped over by a Scottish schiltron.
Other games that caught my eye
The battle of Zorndorf by the Ilkley lads, lots of eye candy
First St Albans
French & Indian wars, very nice terrain
ACW game using Longstreet rules
Almanza - very impressive collection, but just seemed to be a line them up game and the castle on the hill looks odd.
