Ian decided that he wanted to dig out his Spanish conquistodors and his pikemen. So, thus a scenarior based on Wigan Lane was born.
Several factors have to be considered when we plan out a battle.
1. the playing space: I have a small table which becomes the battlefield.
2. The setting. As part of the battle would have been fought in a fortified town, I have modeled one section of the town, though damaged, with gaps in the walls, and hastily made repairs.
3. the troops. The Royalists are modeled with Conquistodors, the pikemen come from various units, and as a splash of colour, Scottish highlanders
4. The Parlimentarian/New Model Army units are modeled with some of our FWI rangers/militia.
