The Parliamentarians, under Sir Christopher Grey, have discovered that the well-drilled and armed Royalist foot that did them so much damage last battle have been requisitioned by the King and sent to fight further west.

This leaves Sir John Boulters, Royalist commander around Maidenhythe, very short of infantry: he must now rely on hastily recruited farmworkers from the Cookham area.

Sir Christopher now leads his men towards Maidenhythe, seeking to take advantage of his erstwhile friend's shortage of good quality foot. Grey's men are strengthened both by reinforcements and a supply of arms and ammunition, including a couple of cannon. The two forces will meet half way between Cookham and Maidenhythe, at Widbrooke Common.

Thanks for sharing, good write up.

Always nice to see how other people have painted Piggies!

Hi

Thanks for that. The figures are actually a mix of Peter Pig (nearly all the infantry, the Swedish horse, the guns) and Hallmark (the Dutch horse, one infantry battalia).
Cheers
