Our last game for the month of July was a nice little Jacobite Rebellion for the Anglo-Dutch Army to put down........however as in must of my tabletop battles I seem to come off second best. Both sides fielded 700pt Army for the Baroque gaming system. On one side were the Anglo-Dutch Army of seven infantry regiments, two guns and three cavalry regiments. On the other side were the Jacobites who consisted of one cavalry regiment, one Irish Regiment and 14 clans.....nasty stuff.
Right from the start my cavalry were brushed aside by the Jacobite cavalry and the Irish Regiment, which presented my infantry flank to them quite nicely. However my Dutch Brigade did managed to hold the centre and repel a few Jacobite charges before crumbling. The English Regiments on my right flank were made of sterner stuff and held out to the end before the army had to withdraw from the field.
I think if my dice rolling was a little better I would have driven the Jacobites from the field...but alias I did not. Thanks to John Maguire for putting on the game and suppling the great figures. Next week I think we are gaming another ECW game so hopefully I will have some more great images for you all.
