After finding a bit of inspiration to update my irregular blog for the first time in many months I just finished writing up some background and the first session of our recent refight of the Battle of Knocknannus which took place about 25 miles north of Cork on 13 November 1647 between Viscount Taaffe's Irish Confederates and Baron Inchiquin's Anglo-Irish Parliamentary army. We used 10mm Pendraken figures and For King and Parliament rules with our additional celtic fringe houserules. You can find the blog using the link below.

I hope you find it a worthwhile read :)
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
we are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

Good write-up Pierre. It will be interesting to see what the final outcome is.
