Considering the inclusion of Bosworth field in this game I thought I'd link this here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-21063882

So it looks like some new light has been shed on the battle's outcome and on the form of Richard's body.

Quote:
His skeleton had suffered 10 injuries, including eight to the skull, at around the time of death. Two of the skull wounds were potentially fatal.

One was a "slice" removing a flap of bone, the other was caused by bladed weapon which went through and hit the opposite side of the skull - a depth of more than 10cm (4ins).


Quote:
Richard III was portrayed as deformed by some Tudor historians and indeed the skeleton's spine is badly curved, a condition known as scoliosis.

However, there was no trace of a withered arm or other abnormalities described in the more extreme characterisations of the king.


Now even more excited for B&R to hit 500 so it can soon thereafter hit my table!

It doesn't even need to hit 500 orders! GMT has already put it on the production schedule for 2013!

That is awesome news!

Finally, we can simulate the defeat of the Tudors and see the boar triumphant!
