Hordes and Heroes Medieval - Samurai v Korean

This game pitted the very potent Korean light and heavy cavalry and supporting infantry against a mixed early Samurai army which include a good number of Ikko Ikki fanatics. The terrain layout had a scattering of woodland and hills and escarpments but with enough room for cavalry units to use their ...

Hundred Years War - English v French (2 games)

This scenario was designed to create the classic encounter between these two adversaries which pitted the English longbow against the French heavy knights. There were, a total of 6 units of heavy horse in the French force, against the 2 of the English which did have three units of mounted sergeants....

H&HM Hungarian/ Teutonic v WOTR Yorkist

The same Hungarian army which had recently suffered a defeat to the Mongol army in a club game was pitted against a War of the Roses Yorkist army. The terrain was pretty open in the centre of the field with a scattering of hills and small woods through which a road threaded between. Tony, Steve, Chr...

This scenario was played using 15mm miniatures on a 8ft by 6ft Hexon terrain layout modelled by Dave Mack. The Command Decision rule system was used with all movement and weapon ranges adapted for hexes. Dave played the role of ‘Scenario Controller’ while Tony and Jack were the British Commanders de...

Ottoman Turks v WOTR Lancaster

When building the two armies for this encounter I deliberately gave the Ottomans a 2 to 1 advantage in missile troops to balance their ‘C’ class troops against the smaller but mainly ‘B’ class War of The Roses Lancaster opponents. The Ottomans also had 2 units of artillery; bombards and large field ...

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...
