OK so by this morning all commanders should have in their possession:

Situational brief for Britain in 1692
A personal brief about your own command and personality
A full orbat of your forces


Between now and the event you will receive updates on the campaign progress of your forces and other information.

I will soon start to put together list of all the figures we have available and for those who want to command their own models we'll make that happen as much as we can through the pooling of collections.

I am getting excited already!

Don't forget to call in the Close Air Support when needed, it could be crucial, especially if they haven't deployed the AA.
Elite Mirage are quite effective in 1692.

might invoke the old WRG 6th Ed rule for Flaming Pigs!

With talk of French dragoons razing towns in the Covenanter heartlands, Irish soldiers sacking parts of Devon in a 'Remember Drogheda' retribution campaign, defections from the English Army, massed livestock raids across the border, French privateers in the North Sea, hidden arms caches, secret letters passing between the rich and infamous, corruption in both armies' supply organizations, unseasonal weather and the cancellation of Midsomer Worthy's Oak Apple Week Gala Maypole competition...... the world has gone mad! :shock:

Don't forget Angry Bears plus I'm sure there were still wolves and wild boar roaming areas of Britain at this time?
