My friend Alex and I got in a battle from Russo-Swedish War of 1656-1658 using the Liber Militum Tercios ruleset. Alex brought his 15mm figures from By Fire and Sword. For the battle, he took the "Defenders of the Realm" scenario from the Tercios Kingdoms supplement and crafted it around the siege of Nyenschantz (1656). In this scenario, the Russians are trying to damage the fortress while the Swedes need to inflict casualties on the Russians and prevent the assault on the fort.

I took command of the Russian force (2 pike and shot units, a battalion of Streltsy along with some artillery and cavalry). Alex started with 2 pike and shot units to defend the fortress and 3 cuirassier regiments coming up as reserves.

The Russians escaped near defeat on their right flank as the boyar cavalry played a delaying action while the dragoons and streltsi assaulted the fort.

After 5 turns, the Russians could claim a decisive victory due to the damage done to the fort. Game was much smaller than our refight of Fleurus and was finished in 2 hours. Lots of fun! More pictures and story here: link
