H&HM Hungarian v Mongol

This was set up as what you might call a ‘closed box’ game. In other words, until the terrain pieces were chosen and laid out by usually a non-playing volunteer, or more likely a ‘pressed man’, none of the players, with the obvious exception of myself know which two armies are going to be engaged. T...

Medieval Korean v WOTR Yorkist

For this ‘catchweight’ contest we pitched a Yorkist war of the Roses army with a fairly even composition of mounted men-at-arms, longbow and billmen, against a Korean army of spears, handgunners, heavy and light cavalry. Most of the point value of the Korean army was concentrated in the 6 units of v...

Teutonic order v War of the Roses Lancaster

I deployed my WOTR Lancastrian army in a very strong position making good use of an 8 hex escarpment. I had won the di roll for choice of table edge but lost the roll for choice of first/second deployment. Unfortunately, my undeniable terrain advantage must have annoyed Tony and Dave as they chose t...

Re: Follow up

Hi Ratty The 'A' class infantry not having to follow-up into the vacated hex is on page 12 of the rule book, or somewhere close! Rules update! The updated text is complete and has been for a while. We are currently sorting out important production logistics and really need to get everything in place...

Re: Follow up

All units must automatically follow-up and occupying the hex, after eliminating an enemy unit.
Exceptions are:
The victorious unit:
Is A class infantry.
Is part of a 'shield wall.'
Is behind planted stakes.
Is behind pavisses.
Is of a unit type that cannot enter the terrain contained in the hex.

Re: Battle of McDowell 1862

Hi Norm,
Thanks for posting the link to your blog. I've just finished reading the McDowell battle report which was a very informative and entertaining read. Your Two Flags rule system managed to closely re-create the historical outcome - never easy to do, and is testimony to the quality of the system.

WWII Combined Arms Assault - Infantry and Armour

In this World War II scenario, the British force was tasked with pushing through the German defences, the individual units of which were indicated by marker chips. These also included some ‘dummy’ markers which made the game both interesting and challenging for the British commanders (Tim and I). To...
