A Never Mind the Billhooks After Action Report

Wargames Illustrated #393, the September 2020 issue included and very enjoyable set of War of the roses rules called Nevermind the Billhooks, a set of rules intended for large skirmish games in 28mm.

I have been interested in this period for some time and have been playing around with it ever since the Perry brothers released their excellent miniatures for the period. I have experimented with a Sharp Practice variant (one for the original edition and the newer second). as well as a variant for Lion Rampant.

At present however, my War of the Roses go to is Never Mind the Billhooks. I find it an excellent balance of historic feel to enjoyable playability.

Here is my review video

..and here is an after action report

Untill next time,
