Pike and Shotte


10mm League of Augsburg

The last game using the League of Augsburg forces was fought whilst home.  I did not take part but 'umpired' instead as we had 4 players plus me.  We used our 'go to' set of Warlord's Pike and Shotte.The game pitted an Allied army who had to try and take the town and drive off the French, they failed!The guys who actually rolled the dice and moved the figures appeared to have a good time and the rules played very well.Now the eye candyFrench infantry brigadeDutch cavalry brigade, including the horse guards(light hats) and Swedes in Dutch service, in the foreground.The Wild Geese...Irish brigade in French service.French cavalry brigadeThe French holding the village, dragoons on the right and Guarde Swisse in the foreground.The figures are the fantastic Pendraken range and the buildings are pre painted 6mm Russian style that I bought off of EBay

Kümmerling, 1512.

Last week game was Italian Wars with  Pike and Shotte rules game. It  started with small delay, as both main figure suppliers were argue about the size (of armies and the table, of course). When they finally get some agreement we were able to start the game.W ostatni czwartek naszą grą były wojny włoskie z użyciem zasad Pike and Shotte.
