Stow-on-the-Wold Scenario published


The For King and Parliament Battle of Stow-on-the-Wold Scenario is a digital file, designed for use with the TtS! For King and Parliament English Civil War rules, but which could be adapted to work with other rule systems, too.

A sample page from the scenario booklet

Stow-on-the-Wold is a modest scenario depicting the last major battle of the First English Civil War, which occurred when the last Royalist field army, led by the valiant Jacob, Lord Astley, was brought to ground by a superior Parliamentarian force. It is a modest-sized battle with only 21 units. It will suit two to four players, or solo play.

The Royalist OOB
The eight-page scenario PDF includes a brief account of the campaign and the battle, reconstructed orders of battle for both sides, and a deployment diagram. It can be viewed on a tablet, or printed out and bound.

Sample page of unit cards
Also included are the For King and Parliament Battle of Stow-on-the-Wold unit cards, designed by Ian Notter. There are cards for the general officers, some of the colonels, and all the units that we have been able to identify as being present at the battle, or surmise were there. These can be printed out on card, and used, in conjunction with the scenario and rules, to re-fight the battle.

The scenario and unit cards can be purchased here.

If you are planning to re-fight the battle using For King and Parliament, you might also want to buy a 3' x 4' 10cm cross-grid plains mat.

Finally, the For King and Parliament ECW rules can be purchased here.
