DBA 1500-1900 ECW. Royalist vs Parliament

English Civil War clash, turned out to be a right bloodbath (for me......)
Jack was for the King being the Royalists & I the forces of Parliament.

English Royalist, 1620-1660.
1x3Kn or 4Sh, 3x3Kn or 3Cv, 1x3Kn or 3xCv or 4Pk, 1x3Cv or 3Dr or 4Sh, 3x4Pk, 2x4Sh or 2Ps, 1xArt.

English Parliamentarian, 1641-1645.
3x4Pi or 3Cv, 1x4Pi or 3Cv or 4Kn or 4Sh, 1x3Cv or 3Dr or 4Pk, 2x4Pk, 3x4Sh, 1x4Sh or 2Ps, 1xArt.

Initial Setup – Parliament on the Left, Royalists the Right

The Parliament troops (me)

The Royalist Troops (General Jack)

Prince Rupert waves his big floppy hat

The lines advance

The Royalist cavalry have the high ground

Clash of Cavalry…advantage to the high ground

Oh dear the Roundhead cavalry is smashed…
the flank is open (tut.. tut.. I shake my head)

Not looking good for Parliament

My casualties…yes half the 12 element army!

Final Positions.. I don’t think I won one single combat.

General Jack whoops his Dad again.
