Its a very pretty and unusual collection which is a good enough reason to use it for our demo game. It also played quite well as it turns out.
The collection is Chris Charltons and excellently painted by chum Steve Shann. Rules are amended Black Powder.
The main Franco Irish army march to support the Westmeath rebels.
The British are outnumbered, the Irish are almost exclusively pike armed other than the Legion Irlandais and a couple of units of Skirmishers, but int he centre the French have a strong force with artillery support.
On the left the British have managed to wheel in on the flank of the Irish creating a crossfire and the Irish there are taking horrendous casualties and unable to close with the British.
In the centre the French continue to advance and an artillery duel begins as the French close on the open fields next to the hospital.
The first attack from Chris F is driven off with heavy losses for both sides, things get sticky once the Irish get into contact with those pike but the British are able to hold their own....just!
However the damage is done with both French units, the only quality troops they Franco-Irish army has, now shaken.
There were also loads of other great games, Partizan is my favourite show of the year, but apologies I didnt get nay decent snaps of these.
See you soon.
