Having 2 games planned & a big turn-out expected tonight, I spent most of the day reversing the second law of thermodynamics to restore some order in the wargames room so both tables were available for play. We had the biggest turnout for a long time with the regulars, Jim, Steve, Mark, Mike & Chris supplemented with Dave, Renfry & Nick.
Maharajah 2014 2nd Round Game 2:
Steve's Germans v. Mike's US Bolt Action 1000 pts.
Envelopment Scenario - Germans attacking.
The battle for the Maharajah Trophy 2014 will be fought between Steve's Germans & Nick's US as soon as we can arrange a date.
Wars Of the Roses
Meanwhile on the big table we had a three players a side Wars of the Roses battle using our Hail Richard III variant of Hail Caesar. Each player commanded a "battle" of 6 units.
For the Lancastrians: Nick commands their right, Dave their centre & Chris their left.
The number of units was equal, but York had more cavalry & Lancaster more heavy infantry.
Mark & Renfry devised the Yorkist plan while Jim was busy with umpiring duties setting up the battle on the other table. They made a deployment map in another room while the Lancastrians deployed. The Yorkist plan put most of the cavalry on their right under Jim's command with orders to attack!
