Just to clarify - please disregard the reference to a Spanish Ally. This option is not available.

Just 11 tickets left now. Don't leave it too late.

Army lists are dribbling in,much in the same way Ruddock dribbles late on in the evening....

Deadline is the sixth July. I await Graham Briggs efforts to get another army list which never came anywhere near the campaign area. Samurai in Dorset maybe....

It has been pointed out that the French came in force to help the Welsh in 1403 to 1405 as well, so that is a legal allied option at that date.

No Hunnic allies though thank you.

Did they? I believe they just stared at the English and then went home?
