Last Wednesday night at our club meet we broke out ECW Scots for a game of Baroque. We had played a couple of times before but still made a couple of mistakes.

Played on a 6 x 4 table using 700 ish points per side, we had a few to many troops and manoeuvre wasn't really an option. Still both side put up a stiff fight the Royalist loosing their centre will the government broke on their right and couldn't push past a plucky bunch of elite Pike and Musket on the Royalist right.

There are a couple of issues with the army lists for the Scots (both sides) and artillery is a bit under powered. Anyway fun game good laugh. Photos are a bit dodgy taken on my phone.

Of course after the game we had a look at the army lists which recommend 600 points per side not 700.

Great game, excellent set of rules.

For some reason there is not a lot left on the table
