In these books, Peter Dennis sets the paper soldiers of the 19th century marching again across the wargames tables of the 21st. All the troop types of the wars are represented in full colour in a format designed to create stands of soldiers which can be used to re-fight these epic struggles for the control of Britain. Although the figures can be used with any of the commercial sets of wargame rules, an introduction to wargaming and a simple set of rules by veteran wargamer Andy Callan is included, along with buildings, trees and even early gunpowder weapons, fearsome Irish Kern and ruthless European mercenaries.


"The main rules are sufficiently simple to be easily intelligible by players who don’t possess extensive knowledge of the period and yet have sufficient ‘period atmosphere’ to enable them to recreate the style of fighting in the Wars of the Roses battles without being complex or requiring much mental arithmetic. They will also provide an enjoyable game for more experienced players… Highly recommended for anyone teaching, or contemplating wargaming, the struggle for the English throne in the fifteenth century" Wargames Illustrated


"looks like a great way to quickly build playable, good looking armies for the tabletop … I think you could build an impressive army very quickly." miniaturewargaming.com


“ … The production values are everything you would expect from such a renowned illustrator as Peter and Helion … Everything is there that you will need to set up your first game except an opponent, a table to play on and some dice…” Hobilar: The Journal of the Lance and Longbow Society


"Besides infantry, cavalry and artillery, Dennis thoughtfully and artistically arms tabletop commanders with everything from buildings to trees and waterways to create a given period’s scenic atmosphere… These inventive books are recommended because they offer both the beginner and the veteran a quick, easy and affordable way to build up formidable opposing forces. Dennis deserves high praise for launching a revival of the art of creating paper soldiers painted so intricately and brilliantly."
