Piquet and The Italian Wars in Olicanaland

Postby Yarkshire Gamer » Thu Oct 04, 2018 5:25 pm




A few weeks ago I got to visit James in nearby Olicanaland and have a game with his cracking Italian Wars collection (plus a guest appearance from some YG units).

It was my first game of Piquet too, a quite old set of rules which played very well, I will definitely give them another go.

The post discusses the rules and the game but if you can't be bother to read there are lots of nice pictures.

Mixed fortune for the Yarkshire Gamer contingent, the Borgia Gendarme excelled, the Swiss Pike not so well.

Congratulations. :shock: I'm always very impressed by such displays of large medieval armies (I only play skirmish I'm not bold enough to do larger battles in 28mm).

Olicana exists solely to make us mere mortals horribly aware of our own inadequacy. :froth:
