This was a tryout for the rules Mark has been working on them for a while, and he brought a selection of his beautifully painted 28mm figures along to play with.
Mark and I were the staunch defenders of liberty and parliament, while John and Kayte were the foppish monarchist absolutists. Photos all taken from the Parliamentarian side.
|Parliamentary infantry deployed in very modern order with independant wings of shot.|
|Brave parliamentary cavalry. Hurrah!|
|Artillery and cuirassiers. Hurrah!|
|Wicked Royalist infantry deployed in unimaginative clumps.|
|Our brave chaps advance and get a bit shot up. The Royalist cavalry also take some casualties from artillery fire.|
|We press on in the centre.|
|Royalist dragoons open up from behind the hedgerows on our cavalry.|
|The remains of our cavalry take on Royalist musketeers.|
|Getting to grips in the centre.|
|On the right our infantry form a sort of vaguely square-ish formation.|
|Much to everyones amazement, our cavalry manage to rout the Royalist infantry regiment, even though they have been all but wiped out.|
|Our cuirassiers get stuck into the Royalist fops.|
|In the centre another Royalist infantry regiment routs, and it is pretty much game over at that point.|
