Thanks to everyone for last night.
August 1643 - the Royalists had been besieged for weeks and spies in the Parliamentary camp bring news of an impending attempt to storm their defences. This was their chance to break the siege - word was sent to Oxford. The forces of Parliament did indeed take the Queen's Sconce, captured gun emplacements and even got into the outer defences but everything did not go their way. The counter strike by the Royalists saw success as they overran one of the parliamentary sconces and they also took gun positions. The surprise flank attack by a relief force from Oxford on the weakly held Scots positions meant heavy casualties as they advanced over open ground. Eventually the Royalists managed to force the Scots back from the defences and gained a foothold inside the siege lines. The intervention by the relief force tipped the balance in favour of the Royalists and Parliament raised the siege but at a heavy cost to the forces of the King.
September 1643 will see open conflict as the opposing armies jostle for position. There will be more multiplayer games using scenarios that are not from the book.

Promotions - last night saw several players promoted to colonel and so their companies are given over to the care of up and coming ensigns! I have extended the honour table as follows:
61-80 Ensign     81-90   Lt.     91 - 105  Cpt   106-130 Maj. 131+ Colonel

Anyone "promoted" back to Ensign starts again with officer characteristics.
Promotions after last night:

The departing Colnel wouldn't leave his troops to a Carless, sly, ineffectual, womanizing, wounded, foreigner (or parts thereof!) Would he???

But only a blessed duellist who's a natural leader and soon to be lion of the east?

Or do we get the Generals cousins youngest son and can't argue with the General?
