Quote from: Grahame on June 18, 2019, 09:28:32 amJune 1644 - Parliament's attempts to bring in supplies to their army have been frustrated by Royalist raiding parties - barrels of ale and roast mutton now await the King's men. The gunpowder and shot needed for Parliament's next siege  did get away down river.....

Catch up games will be as follows:
Gary & Andy Miller vs Mike - using one of the 2v1 scenarios as played last time. In this case parliament will be trying to stop Mike getting sheep/carts/barges off table. Andy Mellor will be playing 'phantom' Royalist armies in a similar scenario. These need to be done before third week in August [ no campaign in July]. Could the players named talk to me about further details.
thanks
Grahame

Andy Mellor

Phantom Army??? Do I need some witch hunters. Cromwell won't like it!

Hi Graeme, would the 29th be ok for the catch up game?

Grahame

Hi Andy 29th is ok with me for the catch up
Grahame

Grahame

Change of plan -Andy Miller can't make the 29th so it will now be Gary and Andy Mellor vs Mike. This may well be round at Mike's depending progress at St Johns

A belated attempt by Parliamentarian patrols to recover the barrels of ale was rebuffed by the Royalist escort. The  Royalist Ensign leading the escort has been promoted for a well handled fighting retreat although at some cost in casualties.
The next round of the campaign will be on August 19th. Please confirm if you will be there - I know at least one player is on holiday so I may do the siege in September.

Mike Whitaker

I'm going to be there. (Wherever there iS :D)

Due to Mike's casualties, should his troops suffer a -1 to shooting and a +1 to morale for the next game, due to the effects of all the extra booze he got away with?

Ash will be there but I am away on the 19th.
