Please see here link for the write up of the latest battle in my ECW campaign, in which King Charles is marching to relieve Newark, currently besieged by the Earl of Manchester's army…

The King seems to have the upper hand in this campaign so far :)

Yes, I think so, on balance. OTOH, Parliamentary successes have mainly been of a more unglamorous sort: control of the West Country and Southwest, control of all South Wales, early control of Portsmouth, Reading and Basing. I think that the King really needs to be ahead in 1643 to have any chance when the Covenanters turn up (January 1644).

Always interesting. Still thinking about the Swedish Charge…

thanks barcah.

yes,the big question: should "Swedish" type Horse have the advantage in an otherwise even fight…

My understanding of the Swedish Charge in the TYW was to overwhelm an enemy that had first been disrupted by the salo and battalion gunfire. This was the way the Swedes could deal with the formidable Imperial curassiers
