The Battle of Prestonpans (part2)

The Jacobites surge forward , the rules allow for a variable move distance hence the rather ragged advance . The British guns open fire but cause no casualties.

Hamilton's Dragoons move forward on the left flank .

The clan regiment fires a volley and the untrained mounts of the Dragoons panic which causes the whole unit to rout off the table , Thomas Murray's regiment become shaken as they witness the Dragoons fleeing past them .

The Jacobites pursue the fleeing cavalry .

The British line opens fire , Lee's on the right flank drives of the Cameron clan regiment , who flees back across the moor . However in the British centre the regiments of Lascelle and Guise panic, firing wildly then rout off the table leaving a huge gap in the British line .

Lee's regiment although shaken holds it's place and drives off the Cameron's . The flanking clan regiments ignore their fleeing comrades and keep advancing .

The Clanranald regiment charges home into Murray's driving them back , General Cope joins them trying to hold the Jacobite advance . Things are not looking good for the Government army , part 3 to follow soon .


  1. Clearly the Spirit of Mel Gibson watches over the Jacobite dice!

  2. Very nice looking game, can't wait for part 3.

  3. I hope you're going to follow this up with Culloden, Tony!

    1. It would be nice to , but would need more figures , maybe sometime in the future .

  4. Great stuff looking forward to part three
