Tally Ho!

Saturday 5 February 2022

ECW 20mm - Adwalton Moor

In this battle the Earl of Manchester attacked the Fairfax's and after being initially pushed back, stabilised the front and  launched a counter. 

The outnumbered Parliamentary forces began in a series of enclosures looking to attack the lower quality Royalist forces. 

The Royalists  attacked on the flanks with their horse and in reversal of history it was their left that had success and was able to rout the Parliamentary Dragoons guarding the hedge line there.   

Centrally things were pretty even, but the victorious Royalist horse turning in began to roll-up the line and so forced the Parliamentary infantry to withdraw. So as in history Manchester won for the King.
