Here is my one page proposal for a Wars of the Roses Campaign for 2022, for consideration at the forthcoming AGM!

Attached is a more detailed document including proposed army lists and house rules for the campaign.


The campaign will cover an unknown fighting season early in the period of Civil War and unrest in England known commonly as the Wars of the Roses. 
Henry VI is a weak king, subject to periods of sickness. The country is currently ruled in his name by a council lead by the Duke of Summerset and the Queen Margaret of Anjou. Opposing them are Richard, Duke of York and the Earl of Warwick. Henry Tudor is still a boy. 
Each noble will need to decide which side they support. As they both struggle to control the King. 
We will use the Lion Rampant rules set by Daniel Mersey as the basis, with some adaptations to allow for the period, including new troop types and some house rules. 
Each player will represent a minor noble, and will mainly draw forces from his own household and retinue, with some limited mercenaries available.  
As an alternative you can choose to be a Mercenary Captain, or a Scottish or Irish Lord who has chosen to get involved for one or other side, for pay (or plunder). 
In addition to the standard Lion Rampant rulebook we will add the rules from Pikeman's Lament for Leader progression, and for catastrophic activation rolls (double 1 or double 6). 
Retinues will be of a slightly larger size of 30pt to allow for the more common upgrades needed for this period. 
You may create a Retinue of 40pts to allow for varied deployments and a 4pt reserve. The reserve may only be drawn from undeployed troops of unit size 4pts or less and can only be a single unit. 
Each noble or captain is seeking their own benefit, and the to this end may find themselves on either side a s the conflict continues. The King will be controlled by the faction that has possession of him at the end of the evening. 
The campaign will start after the completion of the 1645 ECW campaign, and will run monthly over 5 or 6 sessions.

Will this be map based or a kind of "league" system like the PL campaign?

Still to be decided, I will be investigating the mechanism over the next few weeks.

As the Earl of Mackintosh based in Halifax, was a big rival and had support of Yorkie I'd say they fought on the wrong side.

Mr Hawes,
Would that be the Earl Bernard of Deliasmith who has the squires Matt Hews and Beau Tiffle, with the drummer from Turkey?
