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.
