ECW game,Triples and whats next.
First off here are a few of photos of last weeks ECW game using P&S which was played at the club. Great game was had by me and Robb, here is a very brief report. Both armies where Parliamentarians which meant as before it was a local dispute regarding cattle, fields and a busty wench from the local tavern. The game started well for me with everything moving (which is always nice) I took up position with my main foot and cannons between a wood and a hedge both protecting my flanks, a unit of Pike and shotte went up the lane to protect the my right flank and give covering fire(that was the plan).My cav on the left flank galloped off over the fields to hopefully nullify the threat of Robbs cav and try and take advantage of any gaps towards his centre.Robbs cav on his right flank stalled for most of the game then suddenly in the last two turns sprang into life going head to head with my cav whilst his foot advanced and held the centre ground of the battle field. And so the stage was set with the clash of steel resounding from the cavalry fight on the flank and the sound and smell of musket and cannon fire from the center and right flank. As the sun set and the smoke cleared it was a well fought victory for Robb.Doesn't matter though as the cows have seen better days and the field is more of a bog and the wench...hmm? well I suppose it does matter about ye olde busty wench :-)
