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.

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...

Dave and Tim from the Forest Outlaws club ran a participation game at the Leeds show which pitted two large 350 point armies against each other. The Ottoman army was twice the size of the Hungarian in terms of units on the table, but a large portion of the Hungarian force consisted of expensive armo...

Scenic scatter is cloured, freeze...
