Yesterday I visited the Newmarket & Ely Wargames Society (NEWS) who meet in Fordham. They were playing a large game (six people on each side) of the Battle of Cropredy Bridge, 1644 using the 'To Defy a King' rules. I went along to see what was going on and to have a chat. Very interesting as ECW is a period I am hoping to get into.
Here are a few pics of the game at quite a late stage. The Parliamentarians were probably in the stronger position on the whole.
