2013 Emperor's Legion ECW Tournament, Rd 1, Myself vs Rick.

This was going to be a grudge match. 1) We were the top two seeded players, 2) We play each other a lot, 3) Rick usually wins.
Deployment.
Image

Ricks left flank cavalry was cramped for room with one unit of cavalry deploying over the stream. 1/3 of Rick's cavalry carry lances. Damn mad Scotsmen.
After some minor manuevering (1 turn) we get down to brass tacks by charging headlong on my left with the Ironsides.
Image

The hardened troopers sweep away the Royalists and halt their pursuit at the tables edge.
My right flank eventually got the upper hand but it was not so clear or clean. Rick's regiment over the creek kept hanging around and could not be budged.
Image

Rick loves to get to grips with his infantry so whilst two units held back nervously watching Parlimentarian horsemen run amok, 3 units including the Foot Guards advanced in the centre. Both sides indulge in a brief but bloody firefight (1 turn) with the Royalists then charging. One Regiment of Guards managed to charge home with predictable results.
Image

The second Regiment of Guards however were halted but the New Models superior firepower and were unable to charge home. They received another deadly volley and broke.
Image

The 3rd Foot regiment were just standard infantry and got the worst of two volleys from the cream of the New Model foot before being charged and broken.
Image

At this point Rick began his retreat.
A most enjoyable game and over in short order. The other players couldn't at first believe that we were done. Rick had some bad luck with his cav and I was rolling hot for that game.
Round 2 awaits.
