English Civil War Scots v. Scots

Covenanters (on right of pics):
Mike on their left wing: 2 Divs of 4 cavalry.
Chris on their centre & right: 2 Divs of 2 pike & 4 shotte + 2 guns.

Royalists (on left of pics):
Mark on their left: 1 Div of 2 pike & 4 shot. 1 Div of 4 Highland Warbands.
Jim on their right: 1 Div of 2 pike & 4 shot, 1 Div of 6 cavalry.
Mark held back the Royalist left whole Jim pushed their right forward.  The Covenanters tried to make a general advance, but por command dice slowed them down.

Mark has belatedly pushed his left forward.  Mike's cavalry charged Jim's, but bounced back.
 Jim's cavalry has followed up success as his infantry moves up to make a firefight acros the river with the odds on his side.
The 1st Royalist cavalry Div has broken, but the fresh 2nd Div has counterattacked.  With odds of 3:2 against in the firefight Chis' left flank infantry has lost a musketeer unit.  On the far flank Mark's Highlanders have charged home on the pike & shot. 
Jim's pike & shot help his cavalry out by charging shaken horse.  The Highlanders are pushing their enemy back, but haven't broken them.
The intervention of the foot into the cavalry fight has saved the Royalist horse and the 2nd Convenanter cavalry division has broken.   With 2 Divisions broken out of 4 whule the enemy has lost none, the Covenanters fail Army Morale.
