A glorious day for dour indeed!
To my fellow crop headed spaniel haters, good news from South Wales, a magnificent victory for Parliament
Deadtorius (13%) wins vs Lord Turenne (48%)
We are pleased to announce that numerous Spaniels were harmed in this stunning victory
The battle opened with the dour boys of Parliament setting up mostly behind a large patch of rough ground with our horse hidden well behind our foot out of harms way. The Kings forces were in a good position peeking out over numerous hedges and shouting insults while flicking their glorious locks in our general direction. We held an emergency prayer meeting and the good Lord bestowed his blessings upon us and told us "thou shalt not venture far into the open, make thine enemy come to you and they shall be smitten" Thus by divine intervention and some lucky artillery shots the Kings men moved up towards us. Their horse was on the flanks and though their left flank moved up originally, they changed their minds and fell back after taking some shooting from my dragoons and other foot units. Meanwhile the rest of the Royalist force of misguided ones came forth into the zone of death as the Lord did guide our lead towards their unholy hides. My rear ranks extended our left over to a set of woods and both sides began to rain death on the other with lead and fire. Although Lord Turenne did make some success in my center breaking a couple of my foot, I had managed to force him to give up his left and with divine help my boys managed to collapse his center. My cavalry form my right then moved into the rough ground try and get on the enemies flanks. I had a few flank charges all set to go forth and spread the feelings of dour but the royalist forces flowing locks began to stick to their heads from all that sweat and blood and with no locks flowing the royalist deemed it a better idea to grab what few spaniels they had left and return to the locker room for a hair washing session.
Across South Wales the bells tolled a great victory and we made a tidy profit on haircuts and dour black clothing.
Thank you Lord Turenne, it was a good game. I doff my bullet ridden hat to you fine sir, till next time Huzzah!!
