Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all
This morning I was just clicking around on the internet between the the league sites and other images and ended up seeing a nice little map on Sedgemoor.

I recall Barry had done a demo game based on Sedgemoor and had pictures on the old LoA site. I remember a few years ago reading 'Sedgemoor 1685 : Marlborough's First Victory', by John Tincey. Although John Churchill (not yet the Earl or Duke) was second in command he is credited with actually winning the battle.
The light ball went off
What a great little campaign Sedgemoor could be for those beginning the period or with smaller armies, etc.
- Smaller armies to refight the battle
- On the Government side all the famous old names: Dumbarton's, The Blues, Foot Guards, etc.
- On the rebel side ad hoc looking regiments in terms of dress, weapons and flags (Clarence would have a field day for the flags).
- Smaller table
- In terms of rules BLB, Donnybrook and even the new concept rules for bigger battalions with character rules that Barry and co are working on. BLB could be used for the main battle (when using the standard size units), Donnybrook for the skirmish/action at Bridgewater between the dismounted Horse Grenadiers
and rearguard rebels. The new rules are interesting I think because of the Colonels character cards and with the smaller amount of units bigger war game units could be use.
Will yee be for the King or the Protestant Succession
