the curse of predictive text - I'm not bringing improvement trays but lots of movement trays! Just to confirm -  will be bringing Leven & Baillie's commands - I also have available another 6 regts of horse if needed but no more foot.

I forgot it's my granddaughters birthday, but I can come for say an hour and a half in the morning then come back later in the afternoon.
Just means somebody else will have to take my command. Unless someone else is waiting. I don't mind paying the costs as I did say I was coming

Tony
No problem. It's fine if you can't make it. I can adjust the commands.

Figures: 28mm Imperial Roman and Ancient Britons 700 figures ish, 28mm Napoleonic French, Brits, Portugese and Dutch-Belgian, several thousand based for General de Brigade but work for most rules, 28mm WW2 German, Russian, British and US about company of each with vehicles 1 to 1. Large army's of 15mm Napoleonic most nations based to Napoleons Battles but fairly flexible.

So I have changed Ash to Manchester's command in Parliament and Tony to the 2nd Line Horse of the Royalist Right Wing. If Tony cant make it then Carl can manage that with his Front line.

Quote from: Grahame on October 03, 2019, 11:17:13 amThere doesn't seem to be any artillery in the forces listed - I have Scots frame guns etc. Do we need to bring guns?
Grahame
PS made lots improvement trays to bring
PLS any one bringing milk for coffee ?

I will be bringing a few guns for each side, which are built into the lists.

A big thanks to Gary for organising this - always good to have a wargame that looks like a battle - all we needed was some powder smoke and sound effects and we could have been on Marston Moor!

Just got back from travels and rushed to read the battle report. "Improvement trays" sound a real innovation. Is someone going to write it up with photos ? Congrats on hosting the event.

I remember the 'olden days' when I were a lad, and many wargamers were pipe smokers, and were always happy to provide musket smoke!
