Early TYW: German Protestants vs Catholic Tercios (POSTED)

Post by Blathergut » Thu Aug 04, 2011 5:03 pm

As a tantalizing tidbit for Sunday's upcoming battle (1100 points per side of 25mm glory on an 8' x 4' field), I offer one aspect of my battle plan to fight Tilly's veterans:

Two tercios of my own (from the Palatinate and from Bohemia).

Being average, I can get away with a poor regiment (Dutch style) in behind the two beasts.

All this from the guy who said I'm not going to paint any more figures just so my army looks more German....
:wink:

Glad to see you are putting all those extra Warlord bodies to good use. I finally found a good reason to paint up my two boxes of Kuirassier finally... alas pre rule release who would have guessed that ECW Royalists can't have any Cuirassiers :shock:

They certainly do look good, I hope they burn as well on the fires of heretical purification :twisted:

Well a bare victory anyway, but we Catholics are not too proud to take a minor victory over defeat. :)

It was an interesting game as neither of us has ever run most of these troops before so did not know what to expect. I won the initiative and chose hilly (was hoping for a forest to hide my lights in but ended up with Blatherguts steep hill on my left. My gentle hill ended up halfway on my right side board edge, and the forest ended up in Blatherguts deployment area. I ended up with his brush about 7 MU's in from my table edge just off my center line. Blathergut also had some brush on his right table edge both on his rear and about half way up his deployment.

Blathergut broke out his first surprise by commanding out the shot from 4 of his units and combining them into 2 giant 8 base shot units :shock:
One of them deployed off on the Protestent right more or less by themselves so I deployed my Kuirassier there to cut them down, MF in open unprotected and no terrain to hide in in sight.
He also deployed 2 units of Kuirassier in the brush on his left, since he got first move he was able to get out before my Dragoons arrived. The table was so crowded he was forced to deploy his poor pike and shot rear support on his left in the woods, where it took them a long time to finally get out into the open.
