The Battles of Willow Farm

Two games were fought. Parliament won one and the Royalists won one, a fitting draw. The rules worked very well and gave an enjoyable and realistic depiction of a mid 17th century battle. We will look at what constitutes Shock troops next time, in our games only the lobsters were shock troops this time round. Talk moved to Ironsides and Cavaliers...
I am wondering how they would work using Ottomans and am having a wee think about light cavalry etc. Here are a couple of pictures
