Regular viewers of my blog will know that I like to try non standard scenarios for all period, and that when possible I like to play games in a fairly grand manner, i.e. get a thousand plus painted 28mm models on a big table and go at it!

Well it's another of those battles folks, with the aim of reflecting an orderly retreat to the coast of a raiding army in the Hundred Years war. Here's the Free Company of Richard Venables deployed at the start of the game for the march:

And here's the ground they had to try to cover:

Lots of surprises along the way for both sides – as the French tried to stop them making it to freedom. Loads more photo's, narrative and the special rules used are on my blog:

Including details of the historical battle used for inspiration…

Enjoy!
