Here we have a Royalist force on the march...
A foot brigade sits in the middle and a brigade of horse brings up the rear.
In retrospect, the mixed brigade should have brought up the rear as it contained the light gun; not only would it have made sense historically but it may have served us better.
The Parliamentarians took advantage of a local village and deployed a foot regiment on their flank:
The rest of the force moved at double time over the hill in an attempt to split the royalist train in two:
Caught off guard the Royalist, advance brigade tries to come around, struggling to get the gun into position, and advance the foot and horse on the enemy deployed around the village:
The Parliamentarians bring up a gun and another regiment in anticipation of such an advance by the enemy:
Meanwhile, in the centre Parliamentarian cavalry prepare to charge into the Royalist foot brigade, and the Royalist horse fight a number of melees to force both the enemy foot and horse of that wing back (view from behind the Parliamentarian left flank):
Back at the rear of the column, a couple of the Royalist horse regiments retire and regroup for another attack:
In the centre, the Oxford foot- having already lost a regiment- prepare to receive the charge of a pursuing enemy horse regiment:
Tired of waiting for the dilly-dallying foot, the Northern horse attempt to charge the raw Parliamentarian regiment:
This prompts the regiment in the village to advance to musket range, adding it's firepower to light gun and other musket fire to see off the attackers:
Some fortuitous die rolling by yours truly and some appalling rolling by his opponent means that the Oxford Foot stands it's ground. This stand in itself is almost enough to save the day; however, even with the horse coming to relieve the pressure, the severely wounded Royalist general has a change of heart and orders a general retreat, abandoning their baggage and supplies (ie, he rolls three 1's on 3D6 in the Army Morale phase...).
Another close game but this time the victory goes to Parliament.
