Farnborough – Game 3

Final game saw me match against an old club member, Tom Ellsworth… We hadnt played in many a year and was hoping to get a game. Tom brought Early Louis French, which meant I would not have the advantage at impact…. This was going to be a challenge, but one we where up for. Final score was 21-3… giving me a firm hold on bottom place…

Farnborough – Game 2

Game 2 sees me matched against Mark Fry and his Cromwells New Model Army List. His determined horse Ironsides as expected just roll over my jacobites, putting me firmly on the back foot by the end of move 3. Mark took the jacobite right, where as I managed to cause some damage on the centre and left. Including getting Cromwell himself, through a bit of cheeze of killing the horse he was attached to and no where to escape to…. The game ended a 22 – 3 to Mark. The game was great fun with lots of tense and fun moments…

Jacobites at Farnborough Bash

“laddies… Form column, uphill and we can pretend those charging DH lead by Cromwell aren’t there and it won’t smart as they are only on single plus”… Oh by the end of the game we had cheezed killing the DH and killed Cromwell 🙂 but don’t mention we still lost the game…
