If you missed the previous post, Roland at Stafford Games staged a "Pike & Shotte" Demo Day at his store, when Steve Morgan of Warlord Games, and author of the "Pike & Shotte" rules, spent a fantastic day taking us newbies through a thoroughly enjoyable outing with said rules. 12 x 6 table, a fair few figures and a great game.
Thanks Roland, Steve and fellow players! This was a truly fantastic gaming day!!!
|The gallant opposition, in the form of Trevor (seated), Chris (in black, perhaps in recognition of what was to come!), Alan and Greg|
|Aldringen - these were Steve Morgan's figures and some at least of those he brought to the game were from the former Mark Allen collection seen in WI 20-odd years ago - VERY NICE!!!|
|Greg's cavalry that gave Andy so much trouble on our right flank - I love Kurassiere and they are seriously tough in "Pike & Shotte"!!!|
|The Imperialist reserve who gamely marched off to their right flank, opening up their centre for a good bashing!|
|Imperialist foot under serious pressure trying to defend the manor house from our assault|
|The infirm Imperialist commander in his "wheels"|
|Closer view of some of those rock hard Kurassiere|
|Oops, double pictures......|
|Playing "King of the Castle" won't save you...|
|The Imperialist heavy battery that gamely deigned to catch a number of my cannon shot, but refused to yield|
