I'm not going to explain the whole background to this campaign - you can read that in PART 1.
At the end of the last part the Royalists had initiated a skirmish on a battlefield with a small village at its centre. This evening I played it out.
Here's where I left it, with the Royalists at the bottm of the picture and Parliament at the top.
In fact I made one change. I was persuaded by another that for a battle this small there was unlikey to be much in the way of artillery - in my PW rules it represents a reasonable amount of the stuff - so I swapped it for a unit of dragoons, who ended up trained.
They brought up their own newly-recruited horse in support to try and stabilise things. On the other flank Parliament sent their reserve horse into the village, catching the defenders by surprise and inflicting casualties on them.
Action moved back to the board. Parliament rolled a 3 and simply advanced along the third row. The Royalists also rolled a 3, which saw them best by bad weather delaying their march, and caused them to drop down a row.
