Wars of the Roses big game.







 On Sunday the 20th of January, Iain Beal and I hosted a large "Wars of the Roses" game at the Sea Cadet Hall in Leven, Fife. There was 14 gamers from all over Scotland. We played the Lion Rampant rules with everyone fielding a 25 to 27 point army from my Wars of the Roses collection.
In the end it was a Yorkest  Victory.

We then played double games using people's own medevil collections. We hope to run this again later this year.



 I added some new mounted knights to my collection for the game. Figures are all Perry miniatures and flags by "Peter's flags" .
