I cobbled together a quick game for Jon Smith and i to play the other day using Fof-R. We did Cheriton Wood 1644 on a 10x 4 table.
A OOB put together in a hurry saw the Royalists have 9 foot regiments (3 all musket, 6 pike/shot average and 1 superior pike/shot) 3 superior armoured cavalier regiments and 4 average cavalier regiments, a medium artillery battery and 2 commanded shot units.
Parliament had 12 foot regiments ( 2 poor muskets, 9 pike/shot average and 1 superior pike/shot) 4 average horse pistols, 5 average horse carbines.
An after the battle review saw Royalists with 1102 pts and Roundheads with 1150
The battle played quickly and was great fun as always with these rules. The Royalists pushed through Cheriton Wood but were held on the left flank otherwise by Parliament horse and foot.
In the centre the Royalist foot got the better of the Parliament foot but ended up collapsing right at the end.
The right flank saw Parliament hold up the Royalist horse from behind the hedge rows and ended with a slight victory on that flank.
Overall neither side could claim a commanding victory
Photos below show the key moments working backwards from the end of the game (i can never get the hang of this blog photo thingy)
