Lovely looking game and great write up in the blog. I'm quite jealous as our gaming group is on hold at the moment!

Love reading your well documented battles.  You really make this period tempting...

Like we Germans say: Einfach genial (simply great). A well done gaming table and action in the picture. So you definitely use the lockdown. When you make a game with Richard I hope for a AAR.

It was good fun, thanks Giles.
My light cavalry had an initial spectacular success, but then discovered that in these rules, flank attacks are not quite the ace they are in some other sets  lol
For a set of rules that are only a few pages long and look simple in many respects, they have a number of minor complexities and nuances that Iím still not quite sure Iíve completely got my head around. But they certainly convery a great flavour of the period, and make for a pretty fast and brutal game, even with (what did we end up with in the end, Giles? About 250 points worth of troops per side, including leaders?)

Hi Richard - we played with about 250 points aside. Your cavalry flank attack was 'dulled' somewhat by some impressive dice rolling from your opponent. Given the odds you should have won that melee. He had a total of 4 attacks +2 hits from his leader, and you had 11 attacks (rerolling 1's).

Hope to post some pictures/report later.
