The view towards the Royalist left
Having a force consisting of infantry (apart from one unit of dragoons), I decided my best option was to move some infantry into the enclosures and from the relative safety of the hedges take pot shots at the opposing cavalry and supplement their fire with that of my light artillery.
There were gaps in the hedges, which my opponent Dave, made full use of, moving his dragoons forward so that they could fire on my infantry as it advanced. Confident in my superior numbers I continued to advance, but the dragoons were supported by some cavalry and these charged halting my progress. The close terrain meant that the number of figures involved in the melee was fairly small and for a while neither side managed a decisive result.
Melee in the fields
I had moved my two strongest units into the fields near Round Hill, but Skippon countered this by moving a unit forward himself. As one of my units began a fire fight which seemed to promise MAD (mutually assured destruction as casualties were inflicted on each side at the same rate), the second drove off one of Dave's cavalry units which was trying to hack its way through the hedge. This infantry was meant to have the support of a light gun, but it failed to fire for three consecutive moves (ie I rolled a 1 on a d6).
Advance towards Round Hill
Some revenge was gained by the light artillery as they were in hail shot range of the victorious Roundhead cavalry and their fire drove the enemy back.
Surprised by cavalry
This was how affairs ended. I had made some progress, but not as much as I had anticipated. Dave made good use of the terrain, which was not ideal for his cavalry. Careful observation of the gaps in the enclosures aided his attacks and the hedges slowed my advance considerably. The light guns were useful, but as the Allies found in the bocage, the close terrain does favour the defence.
