Almost 2 years after the majority of the figures were bought at a bring and buy, finally a full fat 25mm, mostly Old Glory Somerled range Dark Ages army from the Celtic fringes of Britain makes its way onto the table in the guise of the Welsh at the recent BHGS Roll Call competition.

Inspired by tales of derring do, the spirit of rugby, the stirring voices of male voice choirs and and the discovery of some daffodil-simulating grass tufts on eBay, this mountain-dwelling army with their Viking and Atecotti comrades in arms take on all comers from the far ends of the earth to the naughty neighbours across Offa's Dyke and the Irish Sea in 5 spectacular full colour match reports with big, big, big soldiers on display throughout.

The man, the legend, the Knight of the Realm Sir Tom Jones gives the gibberish-like judgement for the home team and of course, Medieval Hannibal is there for the insight and analysis at the end as well.

It's massive. It's Lush. Its Welsh through to the bone. So, pour yourself a pint of Brains, settle in for the evening (because as Sir Tom would say, "it's cold outside") and enjoy the spectacle in these 5 widescreen brand new reports

The Anglo-Irish list is only displaying 2 Longbowmen. The list requires 4. Are the minimums ignored at this tourney?

Pity about all the drizzle.

It's probably just me writing it down wrongly.

I don't think so. I noticed it on the first photo. There are only two units of Longbowmen. Anglo-Irish is a favorite list of mine, I have played it in two scales and 3 game systems over 20 years. So I have a calibrated eye for the list.

My lists say the minima is reduced to 2 longbowmen after 1400.

Maybe you need some eye recalibration after 20 years of staring at it !

Great AAR…

I didn't realize the list downgraded the minimum with the mediocre Longbow in the later period.
