Wow, that's awesome. Fantastic looking and a great example of how to get the most out of 6mm scale.

@Martin:
If that is Blore Heath then where is the river which Salisbury had across part of his front? It then turned into a line of stakes and finally into a wagon laager at the end as a strong point.

Salisbury had a smaller force but a much stronger position.

The Lancastrian initial mounted 'charge' was probably an impetuous advance by mounted infantry who thought the horse movements on the other side were a Yorkist retreat. In fact the Yorkists were clearing the horses out of the way to make fighting room, which is also what the French did to cause the English attack at Castillon.

This advance came a cropper against the stakes and other defences causing the action to be known as the English Agincourt.

Meanwhile Lord Stanley, yes the same one from Bosworth in 1485, was just a few miles away camping but telling both sides that he was 'on the way'. In fact he was sitting on the fence.
