In this weeks game we went back to the English Civil War.
The players roll a ‘6’ on a d10 for the battlefield control area resulting this being placed in the centre of the table.
In the deployment phase both sides choose a standard deployment with their infantry in the centre ready to move to take the battlefield control area. Both deploy their cavalry on the flanks with the two ‘poor’ commanders facing each other on the Royalist right flank and the two ‘normal’ cavalry commands facing off on the Royalist left.
In the game the two infantry commands move steadily forward towards the battlefield control area. The Parliamentarians have the initiative and reach the control area first, deploying their heavy guns to bring the Royalist infantry under fire as they advance. Seeing the Royalist horse slowly pushing back their right wing cavalry, the C-in-C reinforces that flank by moving infantry into the fields to the right of the control area.
