In this book, Peter Dennis sets the paper soldiers of the 19th century marching again across the war games tables of the 21st. All the troop types of the wars are represented in full color in a format designed to create stands of soldiers which can be used to re-fight these epic struggles for the control of Britain. Although the figures can be used with any of the commercial sets of war-game rules, an introduction to war-gaming and a simple set of rules by veteran war gamer Andy Callan is included, along with buildings, trees and even Viking ships to transport Harald Hardrada’s men to meet their fate at Stamford Bridge.
“… The main rules are sufficiently simple to be easily intelligible by players who don’t possess extensive knowledge of the period and yet have sufficient ‘period atmosphere’ to enable them to recreate the style of fighting in the Wars of the Roses battles without being complex or requiring much mental arithmetic. They will also provide an enjoyable game for more experienced players… Highly recommended for anyone teaching, or contemplating wargaming, the struggle for the English throne in the fifteenth century.” --Wargames Illustrated
“ … looks like a great way to quickly build playable, good looking armies for the tabletop … I think you could build an impressive army very quickly.” --miniaturewargaming.com
