The Late Summer 1642 map is now available on https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=40461478 ... 316F26!154 as are the latest rules.

The XI Midlands has been mustered in Oxford under the command of General rbodleyscott. The XII Borderers have mustered in Newcastle under General turenne. There are still 100 Manpower to be accounted for.

The 11th Northern have mustered in Hull but don't seem to have elected a commander yet. All battle-worn armies have been refitted and 44 Manpower will be carried forward into the next turn.

IMPORTANT: I have changed the rule on carrying forward Manpower - any 'leftover' points after spending round hundreds will be carried forward to the next turn. I think that this is the fairest way to manage oddly numbered armies, by preventing them being a regular occurrence!

Royalist rogue 100 points has been correctly allocated (after I actually read our orders :oops: ) so we are ready for Late Summer 1642 Orders!

batesmotel has taken command of the 11th, so TGM can issue the challenge to him when ready!

Cheers.

"Warlord gets +300 and it should be an Attack"
Whoops, OK. I will post another challenge reflecting this, sounds a bit suicidal.....

New challenge now posted as above.

Request for keyth

Perhaps you could note the resultant battles somewhat like:
Royalist player x sets up challenge with xxxx point army vs Parliament player Y yyyyy point Army, (and then conditions ie attack, defend open etc , agricultural, defender choice)

Lots of confusion as players need to consult multiple charts not only for their own amy but their opponents

for example, Warlord vs Doley should be a 1600 point vs 1200 point battle correct?

Shouldn't it be 1500 vs 1200 points as the army refits in Reinforcement&Recruitment phase?

That army refitted at the end of spring turn 1642 ( a mighty 100 points) so now in the fall turn 1642 it has 1300 points ( and is refiting again haha)
1300 plus the 300 for defending a mega fortress ( I beleive that is correct as i dont have th erules open now, which is why Keyth hoepfully can note this stuff once battles are declared)

In the Behemoth manager file there's no note about it refiting in Early Summer 1642, that's why I asked. The +300 is correct as I understand.

Warlord did refit last turn and has a 1300 point force. I'll have to see why the latest manager spreadsheet isn't uploaded.

The Parliamentary attack on York has been called off as they were unaware that the army was 1300 points base. This was due to an update failure on my part with the manager spreadsheet so you can all blame me!

Victory For Parliament!
With the son low on the horizon, the Royalists fled the field. Parliament's men did not pursue do to exhaustion and of lack of cavalry.

Royalists under Turenne 60% losses.

Parliament under Ulysisgrunt 52% losses.
What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
