Kings of War - English Civil War

 Today I tried out Mantic Games Kings of War for a small English Civil War battle. Here are a few shots of the game.

 Prince Ruperts Bluecoats take a lot of punishment and break.
 The Royalist horse break their opposite numbers but tear off in pursuit leaving the battle far behind.
 Within close musket range the firefight heats up.
 Parliamentarian cannon on the high ground.
 Sir Alan Apsleys foot regiment negotiating a hill.
This Parliamentarian unit wavers under fire from two Royalist regiments.

A good game which had some flavour of the period and certainly felt right.
