Staffsburg - Meet the Imperialists (aka Losers)

Further coverage of yesterday's big game is here as I give due coverage to the gallant losers.

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!!!

Regiment Verdugo

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!

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
