I have accepted the royalist challenge from Doyley.
For whom do I have to post a challenge??
What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

It seems I am fighting Aryaman twice?

Aryaman challenge accepted, my challenge for him is also up.

PW, as always, khannnn.

I am very pressed for time this summer, but as this is a team game, I will try to uphold my commitment. Turns may be a little slow in coming as I only have intermittent internet in the Alaskan wilderness.

Perhaps with cavalry but less with infantry - alas!

Result from the Central West.

Royalist (Cavehobbit) 12% vs Parliamentarian (Rbodleyscott) 30%

The Parliamentarians took up a defensive position up a hill in one of the corners of the map. Meanwhile the Royalist force split in two, one places itself behind some rough hills while the other one moved to the Parliamentarian's deployment area and there begun their attack. The battle ended as darkness fell so unfortunatly the Royalists couldn't rout the Parliamentarians properly.

Thanks for a good game.

News from the Highlands!

Waldorf's Scots beat cavehobbit's Royalists 53-64.

A bloody and chaotic fight in which both sides ended up swiping at each other on their knees in the mud, but the Scots +100 points were probably the difference.

Well played cavehobbit - glad we took the fight to you!

Totally missed this while duking it out with cavehobbit - sorry!

Am I right in reading that I have +100 in this battle too? Will issue a challenge forthwith!

Just a quick note to say that I am away until Monday with no access to technology, but plenty of cider! :)

Warlord formally welcomed me to the campaign by kicking the proverbial out of me. Scots Covenantors 5% Royalist 46%.

The ability of Pike and Shot to march through woods is impressive.

So we have some many games yet to play until 1649 ( early ).

Results from the South East:-
Doyley 50, Royalist win (22%) against Ulysisgrunt, Parliamentarian, (51%)
A very taught battle in which I was on the losing side for most of the game. My right flank was in deep trouble and my infantry in the centre were wavering when my left wing cavalry and infantry started to roll up the Parliamentarian line, and the fortunes were reversed in a flash. Thanks, Ulysisgrunt, for a hard fought game.
