Battle of Worringen Set-up - a Lion Rampant Scenario

It's been a while since my last post due to a heavier workload in June - as well as my 83 year old mom stopping by for a visit last weekend. The weather here in the Pacific NW has been very hot too - 80's and 90's F, and not conducive to painting and such pursuits. In spite of all this, I've been meaning to follow-up on the previous post with a Lion Rampant game based on the Battle of Worringen. So without further ado, here are a few teaser pics of the table just set up - in the living room with the only A/C.
Looking north with the Brabantine forces in the foreground. A watch tower on the outskirts of Worringen to their right. A tributary of the Rhine behind them. Walram of Julich and Adolf of Berg accompany the Duke of Brabant.
My buddy Kimo and I will play out this scenario on Saturday. One thing I became aware of was the need for a few  more pieces of Medieval terrain. I had to resort to using an Empire watch tower to spruce up the table.

Here is a map which the table is loosely based upon.
An AAR will be posted after the game.

  5. I await your game replay with interest!

    It has been very hot on the eastern side of the state for far too long. We have been hanging between 95-100F! On Thursday's afternoon cycling, road temps were 100+ for the duration.

    Luckily, most homes have A/C throughout.

    1. Appreciate the interest, Jonathan. 100's - wow! and cycling too - sounds like quite a feat. I suppose A/C is a fact of life during the summer there. Warm (Hot?) Regards, Dean
