Good game, by the way!

You will find another interesting interpretatiion of Bosworth as a DBA battle here:


This one is based on the "real" battlefield identified a few years ago.

Attalus, would you please give us the roster for the army said you used. Very nice battlefield and report, thanks

It could be based on one of the Glenn Foard options, MajorB … although I think everyone now accepts the Stanleys would be on the right of Henry (left of Richard) in the vicinity of Crown Hill …

I vaguely remember one interpretation has Stanley's on either side of the battlefield – can't remember which was which…

Nicely done. Beautiful figures. We worked had to make DBA 3.0 a better game for the late medieval period – seems we managed to get something right.

OB note: I think the theory that the French mercs were pike has finally been laid to rest. Much more likely they were Franc archers (in this period a combination of Longbow and Billmen in imitation of English practice – hence they get little mention in sources other than being recognized as Henry Tutor best troops).

That opening photo from the Bosworth visitors center is stunning!

Great game btw!

Glad to see that DBA 3 is being used for historical refights… Check out some more here…
