|Looking south, from the Parliamentarian position on the (unfordable) |
River Camlad toward the town and castle of Montgomery. The Salt Bridge in
the foreground is rather more grand than the original.
It's a fairly small action, by my usual standards, so I intend to use a tweaked version of my CC_ECW game, with extensions to allow for some elements of tactical manoeuvre. The Command Cards will not be used, since the game is to be played end-to-end of the table (on the larger, 17 x 9 grid) - I'll use a dice-based activation system.
|Sir John Meldrum's Parliamentarian army - initial position, with Sir Wm |
Fairfax on the left flank with the cavalry (which initially was to push
through to the castle with provisions).
|Col Washington's dragoons, who fought as commanded shot|
|Near-contemporary town plan - north (and the river) is to the right|
|View of the battlefield, from St Nicholas' church - the town had some walls, |
but they were in a bad state of disrepair, so I have omitted them from the scenery.
