Pike and Shotte

This morning I was tipped off that Pike and Shotte; the third set of rules from Warlord Games are now on pre-order on Amazon:

Pike & Shotte: Battles with Model Soldiers in the 16th and 17th Centuries (Main Rule Book)

Now personally, I've found myself perfectly able to tweak Black Powder to suit my needs for the English Civil War, but I'm sure for the lazy gamer these may fit the bill instead.  My only concern being how they treat unit composition; my first game of Black Powder was Warlord's own ECW Demonstration game, in which they rather peculiarly chose to divide regiments into three sub-units.

I personally think I'll wait to flick through a copy, and doubtless Warlord will announce more details soon, which may clarify matters.


  1. I preordered this a few days ago, based on the quality of their Black Powder and Hail Caesar rules.

    Looking forward to seeing how they handle Landsknechts and other 16th century troops.

  2. I have been looking for a set of Pike and Shotte rules - thanks for the heads up.

  3. Amazom are selling it at a good discount £20 instead of rrp of £30
