As practice for our big game and also to allow us to play with our newly painted toys, we shall be putting on a refight of Blore Heath at Triples in Sheffield on April 17th and 18th. Please come along and see us. We still have a bit of work to do though. Eek! I suppose we have a couple of months left to finish it all and build some terrain, so it is not impossible that we might manage something vaguely appealing.
The picture below shows the basic orders of battle with the Yorkists at the top and the Lancastrians below. The empty stands represent command stands that we still need to paint and base (small 40mm x 30mm stands), while the empty 60mm x 30mm stands on the right of the Lancastrian line are awaiting a consignment of light cavalry to support the knights in front. The wagon laager on the Yorkist left flank still needs a bit of work though! (click the picture for a larger image)
The battle will be refought using the Poleaxed rules and will feature 2148 infantry, 108 cavalry and 4 artillery pieces plus crew. It certainly does not look like that many figures in the picture to me, so maybe I did the maths wrong!
