|The Highlanders crash into the Government left flank infantry.|
(And yes, those redcoats are vintage Spencer Smith plastics. Handle with care!)
HoW dictates that in this situation, one unit melees hand-to-hand whilst the other 2 act as support.
|2 moves have been played, and both Government battalions are in flight, |
overwhelmed by both numbers and the aggression of the Highland charge.
|A bit of black-and-white old school flavour for you. |
One of the Government guns is feeling rather exposed as the supporting infantry disappears.
|The 3rd and final move saw a unit of Jacobite cavalry (Bagot's Hussars) move rapidly round the |
Government right flank and charge the hapless militia. 'The Cottage' is seen top right.
Although brief, this was an instructive engagement that supported some of my adaptions so far, and also showed up areas where I had not thought through all the possibilities (for example, the question of Highlanders pursuing following a successful melee). A great pleasure as well to have Stuart's lovely figures to use.
