I've a bunch of 25mm lead that has been on and off tables for 20+ years. A bunch of it is Welsh, a bunch is Anglo-Saxon, and a bunch is generic to the era of Stephen and Matilda [I hope – that's what Old Glory and my best reckoning is!].

I recently stumbled onto a British author who seems keen to do the very best possible without engage in speculative fiction and legend when it comes to medieval battles. Still, always nice to get hear from others who preferably own and have read the books.

Author is Paul Martin Remfry, and the two books are
Medieval Battles 1047 – 1295, vol.1
Welsh Battles, 1055 to 1295

I'm especially interested in the second. The first volume is more general, and covers the period a bit – I wonder if it really adds much to the books I already have. Website is:

If you think these books aren't worth it, do let me know what you think I should get! And of course websites are also welcome.

My figures are mostly Old Glory 25s, but I have made a bit of a foray into Norman plastics by Conquest and Viking Bondi by Wargames Factory. I also have some Gripping Beast that are more like Early Dark Ages / Sub-Roman British. Suggestions welcome.

I think the Welsh Marches offer a load of gaming possibilities, and not just small ambushes of Norman overlords by screaming savages as it is unfortunately often done.

Thanks in advance.
