Please see link for a refight of the battle which began the siege of Oxford during England's 'Anarchy' period of Civil War, using a scenario from Wargames Illustrated 30 with Baccus 6mm figures and the DBA rules.

Great research showing that real battles often provide the most interesting scenarios. Also interesting to see DBA coping well with the dynamics.

Yes, it was well done by the article author, who went back to the original source materials for the period to extract out this interesting little scenario. And yes, DBA copes well – perhaps by restricting armies to their historical enemies it makes things a little easier.
