But wait - treachery on the right flank! The double dealing subservient commanding that force had been bribed to switch sides! (turns out these guys really like the old War of the Roses game Kingmaker, and its betrayal mechanics...) The battle crush this small rebellion was swift and bloody on both sides.
And in the meantime the Loyalists forces take advantage of the confusion to launch their armour on a flanking counterattack...
Which is where both James and I had to depart. We didn't get too far into the nitty gritty of the infantry mechanics but did get a good overall feel for how the game's C2 and armour rules worked. Coupled with what I have read in my shiny new CoC rulebook, I can't wait to have another crack at these rules.
Thanks to all the chaps from the Berwick Wargames Association for a fun game. You can see and read more about the struggle for Zumbanda here:
