Of Pike And Plate

Today over at GHQ we had our inaugural Italalian Wars game, combining our painted units to make up two equalish protagonists. We used Neil Thomas’s Pike and Shot rules with a smattering of his Medieval rules.
I was too much concentrating on the rules etc. to take much notice of my defeat at the hands of the debauched Borgias, Dave will no doubt be along over on the Tales From GHQ blog with all the gory details, in the meantime some pictures from the game to give you a taster.




If all goes according to plan next up at OHQ will be a Battlegroup, Fall of the Reich game.

  3. A really fine looking game and I like how the whole pike block is on one base and not several.
