|Large Williamite battalions deployed for battle|
Here is the answer:
Beneath the Lily Banners is a grand scale rule system which suits big actions and can be adapted for smaller battles. Donnybrook is a skirmish set of rules pure and simple. There is to my mind at least, a middle ground where battles were significant but not large. Killiecrankie, Sedgemoor, Newton, Dromore to name but a handful.
|Jacobite gun position high on a hill top|
Creating more period flavour within a rule system has also been an ambition I have long harboured. With all this in mind I have finally got the new rule set to the play test stage.
|King James's Foot Guards hold the key central position|
|Hard fighting Danes press the enemy right|
We kept our feet dry and had a great game with Bob as the Jacobite commander and Dave as the Williamite. We'll share the game action in the next couple of posts.
