    Please see here for the details of the latest battle in my ECW campaign, as King Charles tries to lead his army out of a trap set for him by the Earl of Manchester…

    Plus two campaign updates:

    January 1644

    & February 1644

    Good stuff! I wondered what was happening!

    That was quite a battle.

    Poor Manchester, let down by Cromwell. I confess I find it hard to believe Charles could do anything right, especially throwing himself into a melee but there you go, that’s war/wargaming. Full of surprises!

    Thanks Guy.

    Yes, it was a surprise, although this isn’t the first time in my campaign that King Charles has led a successful charge, sword in hand:

    (from the Battle of Long Bennington).  In my alternate universe, will he be remembered as a Gustavus Adolphus-esque figure?!?

    This is also the third battle between King Charles and the Earl of Manchester in the campaign to date: the King is up 2-1 so far…

    I see many West Point monographs on the revolutionary abilities of Charles I and his leadership qualities being written any day now – may have had serious impact on US and NATO warfighting strategies!

    On a more mundane note – having rebased my mid 17th century figures recently thanks to you and Polemos, –  this looks to be a pretty big battle, any hints on how long it took to fight?

    About two and a half hours IIRC.  I think it would be at least 3 if played head-to-head though, the tempo phase takes a bit longer in that situation.

     

    P.S. Big developments in the campaign to come!
