The Lance & Longbow Society present the Battle of Baugé, 22nd March 1421 in 28mm. This battle took place during the Hundred Years War after Agincourt. Henry V’s eldest brother Thomas, Duke of Clarence (at the time the heir to the English throne) took on a Franco-Scots army and was killed. The game will be a “Join In Demo Game” where passers-by are encouraged to join in and take a command (there are 6). Rules are a cut down version of Lion Rampant with the rules on one side of an A5 sheet and the units and their stats on the other.
