The "Supply Column" Battle Part 2

Prince Rupert's Royalists win the day! In the final turns of the battle, while Royalist foot blast away at the Tower Hamlets regiment, the Prince leads the rallied Royalist horse around the now open flank (after the last of the Parliamentary horse are routed) of the rearguard. Seen here passing out of the frame in the pic below...



And in the final moment the Prince's Cavaliers make contact with the valuable baggage thus securing a major and in this game, a "sudden death" victory over Essex's Parliamentary force.



loot for the King!...

Once again a really fun excursion into the 17th century via Clarence's great rules...and since there's not need to stop the fun, I set up a follow up encounter assuming the Royalists eventually reach the Parliamentary main body who will have had time to construct a hasty redoubt and a gain a few reinforcements....more on this in the next post!

Excellent I enjoy battle reports with more photo's than words much more fun, great figures ECW is a great period (occasionaly put Rick Scollins superb ECW artwork on my blog), likewise looking forward to future posts of similar ilk.

A good win for the royalists.

The next battle should be interesting; I hope Rupert doesn't get too overconfident and keeps control of the horse(?)
