Yorkist Reinforcements

Norfolk was not a well man and his sick note permitted him to turn up late to Towton. One facet of the refight will be how we deal with Norfolk's arrival. For the first game we shall probably have him arrive at his scheduled time and see how it all turns out. After that we really need to add an element of randomness to keep the game fresh. Therefore, Norfolk's arrival will be diced for. Will he turn up early or on time? Or, will Edward only receive a sick note sent by messenger? We shall have to wait and see.

Fortunately, Norfolk turned up on time for this photo shoot. Here is Norfolk's whole command, based on a single iteration of the order of battle. Graham has also painted up a version of Norfolk's command. That, combined with this, will form the Yorkist reinforcements. After all the painting, let's hope they turn up early enough to see plenty of usage!

  2. Off the top of my head, I think we are on track for 17000 figures on the table, although I still have around 3000 of my own to paint towards that total.

  4. We are hoping to do Vapnartak, Triples, Salute and Derby next year, plus possibly one or two other venues. It all depends on money and time though (especially money!).
