Grahame - I can be there for 17th - thanks Alan

Pippa Peile

Ash and I will both be there on the 17th


Hi Grahame,

Do you have an estimate of table numbers and sizes for the 17th? I can also start setting up the scenery (unless that would spoil the scenario).



Hi Colin - thanks for the offer - we will need a single 4x4 and three 6x4 tables please - all down the far end of upstairs please. Just put cloths on the tables - the scenery will be placed by the players.

June 1644 - the initial clashes at the start of the campaign season in May has seen rapid promotion for some and the death of one eager young ensign. At the start of the game on 17th there will be a round of dicing for promotions :
King         Carl> Lt   Ash> Cpt   Pippa> Cpt  Tom> Cpt  Alan> Cpt
Parliament   Grahame> Cpt  Andy Miller> Cpt  Gary> Cpt  Tony> Lt   Andy Mellor>Cpt

Mike & Andy Mellor will be playing their first round fight - reminder that you only bring 24 pts plus reserve to this game.
The rest of you will have a choice of which troops you will field once you know which game/table you are playing.


June 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.....

King   Carl> Cpt   Ash> Mjr    Tom> Mjr

Parliament  Grahame> Mjr   Tony> Cpt

There will be no game in in July so the next game will be the siege in August.
