Marston Moor

Been playing around with the ECW lists for '43' & 44' & came up with this draft for a rough army of Marston Moor - the King's side only, of course :) 900 pts really isn't enough to cover something the size of Marston Moor, but it's prolly not a bad stab. Since Eythin & Goring almost won the battle o...

I'm planning to run the plucky Dragoons within a Division of Cavaliers so they can cover each other. And there's lots of both :) Think along the lines of Roundway Down :D I like Dragoons, they're nippy, annoying & flexible. Especially if you can have a good few of them. Just keep them out of harm's ...

The joy of Dragoons

Am just exploring FoG(R) for the 1st time, after playing FoG(A) for a good few years, mainly becuse I get to play with my favourite period ECW :) Having had WoR & the rules since Sat & got my 1st army drafted (at least on Excel) Dragoons appear to be a bit of an enigma... Even though they start the ...

Hmm, I saw the name 'Lurkio' & I was expecting something along the lines of "The ...Prrrologue!" & "Oooh!" :)

It's the principle of the thing, really: Cheap tat just standing in a line waiting to be charged v decent impetuous troops trying to force the issue. To me, it's just morally wrong that Def. Sp should win anything against Off. Sp. Ho-hum, ours not to reason why, ours but to clean the sty.....*sigh*

Off. sp. if of same quality & armour & roughly the same numbers as the Def. Sp. should cut through them like a knife through butter.

Indupitably - but having a bunch of Impact Foot/Heavy Weapon/Off Sp/Pikes steam through the Def Sp without even breathing hard, whilst the Lancers sit on the Wings is prolly better :)
Well, not better for the poor sod with the Def Sp admittedly, but that's just a cross they must bear....

Unless your Shock Mounted get in the soft & smelly, & have to rely upon the Defensive Spears to come to their aid.
Erm, not ideal.....
