took advantage of it to run another game of Italian Wars with
the Neil Thomas rules. Added another 5 units since the last game.
So about 15 units per side in this game.
Spanish vs French, with the Spanish defending the outskirts of a
small town, ie the church.
5 players and the game only took some 3 hours.
The rules are pretty basic, the new players picked them up quickly,
but they have subtleties. Which I'm slowly learning.
I need to hold my cav back a bit, because in the last few turns, mobility and the ability to strike
were everything. Also the Elites and Swiss are going to be major factors near the end, so stomp on them all you can! And now a few pics.
