Battle of Stoke Field 1487 AD

Post by maximvs » Thu Dec 16, 2010 2:39 pm

Here's a scenario from the Wars of the Roses - The BATTLE of STOKE FIELD 1487

Henry Tudor, having defeated Richard III at Bosworth three years previously, is now Henry VII, King of England. Though the conflict appears to be over, there are still some diehard Yorkists who are not prepared to have a Lancastrian king.

John de la Pole, Earl of Lincoln has raised a rebel army, comprised of Irish supporters (on the promise of reduced interference from England), German mercenaries (paid for by his Aunt who bears a hatred to the house of Lancaster and especially the king) and many English who have suffered as a result of the crown changing hands so suddenly.

The king has marched north to subdue the rebels and, after pausing at Nottingham to accumulate local support, has positioned his army to prevent the rebels from reaching Newark.

It was said at the time, that the magnitude of this battle made Bosworth seem a 'minor skirmish'.

Well it is truly a great scenario. I tried it with the Rebels and won before Lord Savage's reinforcements could intervene. Otherwise, I think I would have had a hard time.

Thanks maximus!

Just playing this battle on multiplayer , really enjoying it.
One thing i noticed was my Irish LF are classed as MF
and where not able to evade ?

Many thanks to all for all these scenarios , keep up the good work.

I'll have to check on that Ian!

I began the scenario about 10 months ago (just after Storm of Arrows appeared), so I can't remember which units I changed back then. The scenario was playtested with Scar and changed and changed again, neither of us quite liking it, so it lay unloved all these months.

Having recently played one or two of sockwellpete's very nice WoR scenarios, I brought it out of storage and playtested it again with him. The result is this further modified version, that now plays quite nicely and seems to give an exciting game.

Essentially, if the image is 3 figures it should be MF and not evade, and if it's 2 figures it's LF and should evade. I wouldn't have knowingly altered that.

EDIT -

It looks like it's a possible error in the Storm of Arrows army pack, looking at the scenario unit type it shows the following:

Storm of Arrows - Medieval Foot Other - medieval-LF-irish-kern-a (Unit Type: Medium Foot)
