Edgehill Scenario

Edgehill is one of the most iconic battles of the English Civil War. The TtS!: Battle of Edgehill scenario is a digital file, designed for the TtS!: For King and Parliament English Civil War rules, but useful with other rule systems, too. It is a large and well-tested scenario that will suit two to six players.

First page of the scenario booklet

The 18-page PDF includes a brief account of the campaign and the battle, reconstructed orders of battle for both sides, deployment diagrams, and images of beautifully painted wargames figures. It can be viewed on a tablet, or printed out and bound. You can buy the scenario here.

Edgehill Unit Cards

The scenario is supported by a set of unit cards, sold in the form of a 17-page digital file. These can be printed, cut out, and used to re-fight the battle, in conjunction with the scenario and For King and Parliament rules, although the cards could equally well be used with other rule systems.

Sample unit cards

There are cards for the general officers, some colonels, and all the units that we have been able to identify as present at the battle. There are additional cards for Parliamentarian reinforcements that might have influenced the battle, had they arrived in time. There are also cards permitting an alternative deployment of the Royalist foot in a Thirty Years War "Swedish" style, and card overlays that will indicate whether your horse is pursuing, or your foot formed up in hedgehog.

Cards in action

The cards can be printed either for use with a 10cm grid (9' x 4' playing surface) or a 7.5cm grid (6' x 3' playing surface). They can also be used in conjunction with miniatures, taping each card under a unit's base so that only the tag with the unit's name and details upon it, protrudes.

The full Edgehill

Within 24 hours of your purchase (usually within just a few hours), I will send you an email which will include a four-page PDF booklet which describes how to print, prepare and use the cards, and a link that you can use to download the large 25MB file containing the unit cards themselves. You can buy the unit cards here.

Oh, and I also sell the great big gridded cloth, too, here.
