Another cavalry fight broke out on the near flank as the cavaliers tried to support their foot in the centre and Cromwell charged towards the centre to intercept.
We again used the Hail Caesar divisional & army break tests. This made the battle go on for longer, but not excessively so (less than 3 hours). Under the P&S system Parliament may have won just by breaking the 2 relatively small royalist cavalry divisions, but Parliament was out played and our system definitely gave the right result.
The other house rule we tried for the first time was allowing any flanked unit to make a command test to turn to face if not also attacked frontally. Shaken or undisciplined units have to re-roll passes, and elite troops re-roll fails. If they pass, they turn to face disordered. Further, we make a result of fall back become break if the enemy follows up in contact. (We cannot see the logic in cavalry automatically turning to face, while infantry has to cop it - it makes more sense to have a test favouring better troops). It seemed to work just fine.
