The archers (on the english side) had a pretty bad time of it at the battle...but at least most of them managed to finally escape and get back home

On average it Looks as if the Scottish cavalry numbered around 500 so two stands of 5 a Piece should cover them.

Thanks :D
How much longer? Another two sheltrons, 20 plus english cavalry, rebasing the scottish cavalry and replacing some of them with knights, more english infantry, welsh archers and spearmen.....and a Tonnage of scenery (which I hate making so I´m putting it off for as Long as possible) and then all the other Little Projects that Pop up now and again.....A couple of months yet. :(
