Battle inspired by Fornova and others

I need to let the Bande Nere out ...

so we decided on a wee Pike & Shotte game upcoming Tuesday, some Renaissance can't hurt, you know.
I don't have the masses of troops for this, but since when do I care. The Scenario of Fornova, seems to be alright, even when the units involved were different. Maybe someday I will have them.

Also, on a totally different matter ... I picked up a copy of "Poilu", the "diary" of Barthas the Barrelmaker, and I cannot recommend this enough, its well written and most of all, from the point of view of the normal soldier and lacks refreshingly the class ignorance of the officers.

Psychedelic roll call

nice guns

and the inevitable gendarmes d'Ordonnance

some battle plan I found


  1. I hope you are going to post us some photos the game? Maybe on a less extreme background. ..

    1. Hmmm, I heard Italy is a very colourful country.
