Murdock has already posted a pair of blog posts on our battle . . . with much better photos than the few I took:
Also to correct something I had posted earlier . . . we ended up playing on a 5' wide by 10 1/2 foot long table since the 8' table was not long enough.
Also I should publicly thank Murdock's son Alex for his help in playing my right wing (i.e., Prince Rupert's command) since I am somewhat challenged healthwise and was not physically up to dealing with the long table.

I won't try to recreate the battle (I wasn't up to taking notes) . . . but following are a pair of photos that I took later.

We had to suspend that battle after seven full turns because Murdock and Alex had a prior commitment (and I was running out of energy) . . . but we are planning on resuming it on this coming Wednesday evening.
