For the Cossacks, the left wing cavalry was four units of Cossacks with a unit of horse archers as skirmishers. In the centre were five units of infantry, two of registered cossack musketeers and three of moloisty, mixed spears and muskets, supported by two light guns. On the right were the allied cavalry; two units of Polish pancerni and three of Tartars

In the centre both infantry bodies advanced, though the lines were not maintained as some units got ahead of others.

By the end of the game each sides left wing was in trouble (that of the Cossacks being worse than their opponents); whilst fighting in the centre had stalled as units attempted to recover from the casualties they had received. Steve and I agreed on a draw as the right result.

The army list we used was an unofficial supplement called 'Edge of Empire' which can be found here, many thanks to Thaddeus for taking the time to produce it.
