Wars of the Roses


My son Finn and I decided to display our Wars of the Roses game at the Forfar show today. We were delighted to win best demo.
I have been making grass terrain mats from Fleece fabric and it has worked well. Figures are all Perry Miniatures. We used the  "To the strongest "  rules with modification for measuring as we didn't use grids. The manor house was made by James Sharpe.

Other games that caught my eye...
The Iron Brigades Napoleonic game. Just fantastic well done Kevin and Peter.

Martin Terroni's fabulous, 18th century, game using the "Beneath the Lily" banners rules by Barry Hilton.

Great game!
What exactly is that mat? Can you point me where one can find something. How have you done it? Perhaps it is worth a blog article?

Best regards
Sebastian
