Adwalton Moor

Post by lk2500 » Sat May 30, 2015 1:56 am

Tried this twice on the middle difficulty setting. Things start out ok but I eventually get overwhelmed.

I'm thinking of maybe trying all my cavalry on the right side instead of splitting them up and then moving my firing line of musketeers to the right as well to stay away form the cavalry on the left.

Anybody have some tips on this one?

No other takers? I'll just reply to myself in case others are having trouble with this one...

I could only get as close as a 61-54 loss using that tactic on the middle difficulty setting. I switched the difficulty to Colonel and tried a bit different tactic and ended up winning fairly easily.

I moved all my cavalry except for one Dragoon unit to my right flank. They were able to take on the Royalist Cavaliers on that side and get in a few flank attacks.

I concentrated the Musketeers in the middle to middle-right and kept them moving to the right as the Royalist Musketeers broke.

The Dragoon unit on my left flank was able to scoot by the enemy Pikemen to take out the enemy guns as well as chase down a few retreating Musketeers.

I also moved 2 Parliamentarian Horse units behind the lines on my right flank to chase down some additional retreating Musketeers.

By keeping my infantry constantly moving to the right I avoided the Royalist Cavaliers on my left flank and the bulk of the Pikemen. I was able to route a few stray pike units with concentrated musket fire to get to 60% losses for the enemy.
