Waller's Horse smash into Gerard's Horse scoring eight hits, four of which are saved. However the unit fails its break test.

Gerard's Horse are removed from the table. Parliament artillery advance three moves including unlimbering.


Foot battalia 3 moves so all are now in the house and grounds, I see the building as the main with a number of outbuildings in a walled enclosure, an adhoc fort.

Blewcoates score 3 hits on Oglesby's foot, one save.
Rawdon's foot score 2 hits on the London Trained Band, no saves.

Horse battalia, two moves and charge Waller's Horse. In melee they score 7 hits of which 3 are saves, however, Waller's Horse are broken and leave the field.

Waller's Horse are gone.

So as turn 15 approaches, the Royalists have lost two units to Parlaiments one. The battle is still on a knife edge, the Royalists making a stand in the house and grounds, each sides horse are cancelling each other out whilst the artillery is still trying to get into action.

I shall pause here and continue in daylight tomorrow. Be sure to call back.
