After Marston Moor we decided to have a go at a siege as I haven't used my city walls yet,we were going to use the storming of Chichester from the To kill a king scenario book ,which has siege rules for pike and shot, but on my 6' x 4' table it just took up too much room. I did start making some bridges rapidly as the scenario called for a number but we decided instead to squeeze in the fictional siege of Worcester from the pike and shot rulebook, with a Covenanter force besieged by a Royalist one.
I or Rupert, managed to lose the entire right wing of cavalry pretty much,the left wing was just a bit too congested, I did manage to blow both a hole with a petard and destroy the damaged section of wall with some point blank artillery but by the time that had happened there wasn't time to mount a proper assault and gain entry to qualify for a win within the eight turns, so it was a Covenanter win. It was all great fun and nice to get the city walls out for a first game, we will have another go on a larger table and this time include rules for ladders probably eliminate artillery if they're on a section of the wall when it explodes! I need to finish some artillery off for the period and a petard team and of course I want some half timbered town houses as I was forced to use Italian and dark age buildings as the farm /village buildings take up too much space. Next up a finished off pike and shot unit or something Napoleonic.
All the best Iain
