Nice and interesting wargame here.

"The Hereford VBCW game went of swimmingly at the week end. I took my Royalists, in the form of Lord Robert Grover and his militias, to help defend the estate of the Baron of Foy, a distant relative of Lord Robert, from the terrible Anglican League.


In truth Lord Robert Grover probably had more in common with the officers of the Anglicans that he did with his allies- a dreadfully rough Scots fascist and some uncouth South African's fighting for the king.


The battle consisted of an Anglican attack on the Baron's property in Foy. The main force of the Anglicans were obliged to cross a footbridge under constant and withering fire, with predictable and bloody consequences. The Anglicans, in fairness, were game lads, brave and heroic, but their attack was ultimately futile as the bridge was too weak to carry their Vickers 6 ton tank across the river. A particular down-point for the Anglicans was when the dastardly BUF reduced a section of fine AL cavalry to a bloody mist with HMG fire…"

There were two tables both 6'x10'.

I hire the village hall for these events.
Nearly all the scenery was my own.

8 players in total plus myself as Umpire.
Scenario written by myself and co-conspirator JP.

Most people brought their own figures such as Rob's pictured in the OP.
