Inspired by the latest Borgias series,and the Warlord Games Pike and Shotte rules,its time for me to start a new wargames period. The army of Cesare Borgia and hopefully some opponents. All in glorious 28mm.
Aut Cesar, Aut Nihil, Wargaming the Borgias.

Well Ive completed my first battaille, for the French Royalist forces, only another five or so to go, not counting the cavalry of course. John suggested a great idea regarding basing the pike, which I am keen to use on the next block. As he correctly pointed out, that for Baroque rules, my two pike blocks are actually one unit, so would look better if each base when they came together was based more towards the middle of each base to give it a better look. Probably not explained too well, but I know what I mean.
The French Wars of Religion were still a period where pike and shot were separate entities, especially on the Huguenot side, where they fielded large musket units. As I have said before, they will look better once I get some standards on the units.
