Brian and I were the Royalists and Paul was the attacking Parliamentarians,I was not coming onto the board until move number 4 with a relieving force-too late was the cry!!
The first photo shows the first of many cavalry clashes,Paul had sent all of his cavalry to outflank and prevent the powder waggon fron getting to the defences,however Brian was quick to spot the move and sent his elite Rupert's Horse to counter this.An "impassable" marsh was not Impassable and you can see Paul's commanded musketeers splashing their way through it,these troops did alot of damage to Brian's cavalry,and eventually upset his whole flank!!
The photo below shows Paul's cavalry being beaten in melee and being forced back into his infantry,now that's a thing we rarely see!!
This was another good game, and although Brian felt he was under "the cosh" most of the game,he bravely managed to hold on for a lot longer than I thought he would.
Roll on Thursday.
