It is June 1644: the Earl of Manchester is attempting to stop the advance of King Charles' victorious army towards London from the north: please see link for the latest Battle of Biggleswade.

Are the covenanters completely out of it now after their big defeat? And you just painted them too! Somewhere in an old arquebusier I have seen a kings war scenario for the second civil war, so chance of a second round.

Yes, unfortunately. If they suffer a major defeat the Scottish government pulls the plug! They will maintain garrisons in York, Newcastle & Carlisle if they have captured any of those places before that moment…

However, when the campaign ends, I imagine I will be using them for a series of historical battle refights. Hopefully Baccus will get round to releasing the Highlanders before I finish! Truthfully, things seem a bit grim for the Parliamentary cause, I am not sure how long they can hold on…

Thanks torokchar. In due course, I am aiming to be able to achieve something similar for all of my built-up areas.
