The game, ecw with Ross’s Pike and Shot rules.

 It was good to have the width provided by the table especially in the light of another four cavalry and three dragoons being added since the last game. A simple scenario was the order of the day - take and hold the village as represented by the cottage and surrounding hedges/ fences. The rules provided an enjoyable game as before. We will work out for next time which units are raw etc and finish out debate about what constitutes Shock cavalry in the ecw. Also the rules re throwing to move out with twelve inches of a general are going to be tweaked too. I was pleased with the look achieved with Aldi fake grass and felt cloth. Combined with The Minifigs it was a nostalgic and enjoyable game.
