Let’s play another game of Pike&Shotte!

Friday, August 31st, 2012

As you may have gathered, I picked up Warlord Games’ Pike and Shotte ruleset this spring, along with a bunch of 10mm scale Thirty Years War models.





Two armies I have in the making – Imperials/Leaguists and Swedes with some other protestant friends to tag along (Saxons, Hessians). I intend to end up with two armies of 750 points each. Not overwhelmingly big but a first nice milestone.  Also, units are rather cheap. What you see in the above picture is about 285 points and the table (slightly less than 6′ by 4′) felt pretty well covered already. getting 750 points a side onto that size table might get a bit crowded already, even at 10mm scale models. But I guess that’s how Pike&Shotte works. It, along with its brethen Hail Caesar and Black Powder, are notorious for taking up lots of space and very dynamic movement across the table.

Recent Wargaming (Warhammer 40,000 edition)

Hello people, I thought it’s time for a bit of an update on my wargaming of late.

Warhammer 40,000: I’ve been to this impressively big event in Krems, Lower Austria. Lots of really nice armies, also featuring Space Wolves, Salamanders and pre-heresy World Eaters armies I painted for them. :) (all to be found in the galleries section).
