Battle of Aughrim, Williamite War.

Our most recent game was set during the Williamite War in Ireland. The battle of Aughrim was fought between the Jacobites and the forces of William III on the 12th of July 1691.

The starting positions.

 The rocky hills and the hedges show the area that was a bog and made movement rather difficult!

A fantastic game that came right down to the wire. Having crossed the river and avoided the bulk of the bog the troops on the right took the church and then victory.

Thanks the Adrian again for the use of his wonderful 15mm armies and for running the game.


  1. Wow, you guys always put on such spectacular looking games! You also seem to have a knack for making them play well too. A lot of games this size that I've seen take most of a day to set up, move the armies together, and then it's time to pack up and it's called a draw before anything happens!

  2. A wonderful report with great photos, especially around the church...great looking armies, and an interesting period to play...very impressive!

  3. Great scenes, well finished and workmanship and environment.
    The church and its surroundings is also my favorite ...
