Pikeman's Lament Game

Here are a few photos of a 15mm ECW Pikeman's Lament game we played before Easter down at the club. We played a game of this earlier in the year with Craig's lovely 15mm ECW Peter Pig figures but I forgot to take photos. Both sides had two 18 point commands and the scenario was a straight forward clash. It was quite a close, protracted and bloody game with Craig's Parliamentarians eventually emerging as victors.

  1. I thought PL was a skirmish game. Is it more of a small unit tactical game rather than skirmish?

    Troops look good!

    1. Thanks Jonathan. It is a skirmish game like LR 24 points is standard but you can play larger multi-player games as well.

    1. Thanks Rodger, the rules are similar to LR - simple but a lot of fun.
