War of Hundread Years
Scale 6mm
Minis from Baccus
Rule System: Blood Fields.

French troops, led by Duke Guiere, defend the La Roche fortress. The British, under the command of the Duke of Norfolk will try to break through enemy defenses and conquer the fortress.

The British win the game if they finish one round alone in the "island" where is the fortress. The French win the game if defend the fortress. Either side wins the game if destroy 50% of the enemy army

Details of ground
River – Any part of the river is fordable. However, to reach its edge, the battle group need roll 1d10 and subtract the result of your movement. If the result is not enough to cross the river, the unit must repeat the process in the next turn.
Hills – Normal rules. Roll 1d6 and subtract the movement.
Forests – Are not passable.
Field Grown – Movement halved
Fences – No influence on the game

Thank you for translating. I have 2 6mm feudal armies that have been done for years and I have never gamed with them. A set of rules for small scale might encourage me to pull them out and use them!
