Each year, we stage a mega game at a local Train & Hobby Show. This year it was ECW. Our devised battle (The Battle of Auchentoshan) was set in the Lowlands & saw a Royalist English army confront the Covenanters. Later, on dice rolls, Montrose's army & a Parliamentary army entered as allies to the aforementioned.

The two day Show game is over. After Day One we used our Nightfall concept, not only withdrawing but also doing some re-positioning, rallying & re-organising. It gave the game impetus for the following day &, I think, was a useful mechanism for our game.

‌Initial deployments/Day One

Parliamentary forces arrive Turn 2

Montrose arrives Turn 4

Attacks on the Covenanter centre

End Day One: things look bleak for the Covenanters

Covenanter Lancers: rallied & ready for Day Two

Renewed attack on the Centre

Royalists oppose Parliament

Royalists rampant.

Great looking game. I hope it caught some interest from the attendees.
