We were using his wonderful 15mm collection of miniatures on purpose built terrain for the battle. Special mention must also go to Rosie for keeping us well provisioned during the long struggle all day.
On one side we had me with Gustavus and his Swedes with Ralph taking the Saxons. Facing us was Richard and Alan with Tilly's Catholic - Imperial army.

|On come Tilly's mighty tercios - some a bit softened up from fire on the way in|

|I know I should not gloat - but here are Pappenheim's casualties|
