Williamite War in Ireland

For our Friday gaming session we played a more unusual period. The Williamite Wars. This was a conflict between Jacobites (supporters of the Scottish Catholic King James VII of Scotland) and Williamites (supporters of the Dutch Protestant Prince William of Orange) over who would be King of England, Scotland and Ireland. Noel has some beautiful 28mm figures which we were going to use on the night.

We divided the players into Jacobites and Williamites. The Williamite mission was to capture a ford over the river sweeping away the Jacobites. The Jacobites deployed first and made good progress on their right flank but were unable to penetrate further to capture the ford by the end of the evening. A great game was had by all and a different period of history to play.
