The Cavaliers down the High Street


 My solo "Tersey River" fictional ECW campaign has made an appearance on the table.  Memorable for the effectiveness of the cannon fire from "Little Maggie" which discouraged the Tawney attack across the bridge of the Tam and the headlong charge by Lord Blare down the highstreet of Carweal village being met with the veteran cavalry of the Murrey faction charging down the street from the opposite direction!


Blare's troopers took the brunt of the force and were forced to halt causing a traffic jam of milling horses within the town and were soon forced to flight.

    1. Thank you. I made the stat charts for the units before TPL came out, so use Lion Rampant with the exception of the moving shiltrons (now an 'official' adaption apparently). In future play, the Shotte and Pike units may well combine to form full 'regiments' as the Tersey officers have learned from the experiences from the tactics of the English Civil War raging in the south of the valley.

    2. I look forward to seeing your regiment rules in action. I have fussed around a bit trying to come up with something similar for PL but never came to a conclusion.

    3. Keeping with the KISS method, the shot unit and pike units can be joined, using the shot stats for shooting and the pike statistics for combat, all casualties resulting are spread between the two units with both having the same courage test. Activation is joined with one roll. I will be doing only one of each type together (as this is what I have painted) but a common ECW unit would have a 2:1 musket to pike ratio so putting three units together. A "big" battle game could therefore be done using the Rampant style.
