Please see here for an AAR of the Battle of White Mountain, using Baccus 6mm figures and the Twilight of Divine Right rules.

Quite a fight.
Was that part of your ‘Game Day’? I should imagine it occupied a fair chunk of it.
It’s a very ‘dense’ battle isn’t it? How big was the table?
I can begin to see how the depth thing might work.
That is a lot of cavalry.
I definitely need more – particularly ‘light’ horse.
Great stuff as usual – thanks for posting.20/05/2020 at 07:24 #136693HwicceeParticipant
Whirlwind: Thanks for another great AAR. I will post on your blog as well 🙂
Guy Farrish: I think it is worth pointing out that White Mountain is quite unusual in the number of light horse that were there. Most TYW have a lot less but the battles do have quite a lot of cavalry.20/05/2020 at 07:31 #136694MartinRParticipant
Great stuff! White Mountain has been on my to do list for ages.

Many thanks all.
@Guy: The table was just a 3’x2′. My bases are really a bit deep, being 60mm x 30mm for a single unit, really they should be more like 60mm x 15mm, except for some of the Tercios. So the troops should perhaps be cramped into a smaller depth. In most of these TYW battles this hasn’t mattered, but it did in this one since not only is it not a big battlefield for the number of troops there, they are somewhat canalized by the terrain. I guess if TYW began to predominate over WotTK in my thinking, I might rebase them, but that isn’t going to happen for a while, if ever.
I used the Light Cavalry from the Baccus’ Poles in the GNW range. They painted up as Bethlan Gabor’s lot reasonably well. To differentiate, I used a few Napoleonic Cossacks for the real Poles on the Imperial side.

Thanks Hwiccee, appreciate that.
I have known for a while I need more horse, so not a problem related to the rules. It simply reflects where my painting enthusiasm met the bucket of cold water of my rule experiments. I now feel revived by ToDR!
Whirlwind – thought it must be small, sorry – bijou.
My figures are also over deep – 80mm x 40mm. I have no intention of rebasing unless some major problem arises – I rebased this lot a while back – the pike and shot were on separate bases before and I really don’t fancy doing that again in a hurry!
