More new lists! October 18 2019

I've just added a new Western Frankish list in "Early Medieval", and a Kyrenean Greek list in "Frogs about a Pond" and a new Low Countries list in "Later Medieval" -there are also quite a few edits to other lists in these booklets.

New army lists published October 01 2019

I've recently added several new army lists. Please look out for the new Mercenary Greek list in "Frogs about a Pond" (Xenophon, anyone?), Hephthalite (White Huns) in "Across the Indus" and Old and Middle Kingdom Egyptian in "Cradle of Civilization." 


New "Across the Indus!" army lists published! May 09 2019

I'm pleased to announce that chum Justin Vorhis has written some great new Indian and Hindu Kush lists, which I've edited, and we've created a whole new booklet of lists covering the sub-continent up to c500 CE. We'll add to it, later. You can find it here; enjoy!

Spanking new River-Tracks from Flatpack Forces! March 22 2019

I'm really delighted to announce a tie-up with Andrew Fielden of Flatpack Forces who has introduced the first of a range of new terrain products that will enhance the look of our battlefields. The first product, River-Track, comes in packs of either 120cm of straights, 180-degrees of curves, or crossroads, all 7cm wide. Printed on MDF using a new technology, it is, excitingly, reversible, with a photo-realistic track on one side, and a river (with stunning ripples) upon the other. Double bubble! The pieces link together in a jigsaw arrangement and are light, hard-wearing and easy to store.

River-Track is designed to fit the 15cm grid, but can be used with 20cm or larger grids or, of course, with non-gridded terrain. These are plenty of short sections, including curves and crossroads, which make it highly configurable. Should the pieces prove as popular as I expect, I will ask him to make fields, marshes, lakes and suchlike that will match the various grid sizes. You can find them here in the BigRedBatshop!

New rvers and roads are in the shop! January 17 2019

I've got a limited stock of the new terrain strips from Deep-Cut, that can be laid across mats. They are very nice- want to deploy a road or river in 5 seconds, at Chalgrove?  These are your friends!  


Dirt Road

Cobblestone Road

They go well with the Plains mat. I don't even need a stream at the Chalgrove tournament, but might just treat myself, anyhow. :-)

Revised TtS! Quick Reference Sheet published! January 10 2019

This is an important update to the QRS sheet. The save modifier lines have been expanded and are now very much easier to use. They include a hitherto-missing save for elephants vs. mounted. Some redundant lines have been removed. This version is a big improvement over the one in the rule book, and you can download it from here!

Lots of new bases! September 05 2018

I've added a bunch of new base designs to the shop  Many of these are for King and Parliament, others suit both sets of rules. Some of the FK&P bases give the flexibility to add extra files to units, there are also casualty bases and a new base for field artillery pieces. I've also introduced some new packs for those who want to base their cavalry one rank deep. You can find all the Batbases here:
