Just about every Wednesday night myself and Brian Buskell have a small game in our living room down stairs and I have always been a little reluctant in taking photos due to the poor lighting. However I thought I might give it a go with my IPhone. Well the images did not turn out too bad after all on the close shots. But the distant shots of the whole table did not work at all. The game we played last night was a nice little ECW game with three infantry and three cavalry units per side on a 6 x 4 table.
Brian picked a Parliamentarian Army and I played a Covenantor Army – Post ECW? My plan was to hold on the left and strike on the right. This was kind of how the battle went but I took some heavy hits on the way through. My middle regiment lost a round of combat and routed not once but twice. However they did manage to rally twice and remained on the field at the end of the game…cool.
The game was interesting and could have gone either way. Difficult and close terrain slowed or impaired our movement and shooting. Cavalry charges were made but were limited in success. However by the end of turn six I had taken two victory markers and destroyed enough of Brian’s units to claim one of my rare to very rare victories and the photos worked out well…..win win for both.
Ah! my routing Scots
Brain’s cavalry wisely declined battle against my pike
