The Pikeman´s Lament - AAR #2 - Crossing the steam at Ekeshultssjön 1678
Here are some pictures from out last test game of The Pikeman´s Lament, My and Daniel Merseys new Pike and Shot themed wargaming rules that are due to be published in the Ospreys Wargaming serie in January 2017.
This time the two nemesis the Danish Officer, Second Lieutenant Niels Andersen and the Swedish Officer Second Lieutenant Nils Skytte meet up with their Companies at a bridge over the stream besides the Ekeshult lake south of Örkened i Scania. They both need to get controll of the bridge and the stream.
Once again the two companies used have a lot of different troop types in them, as we want to test as many as possible in the same game.
Officer - Second Lieutenant Niels Andersen, he are a Hothead and have a hard time with superiors - he have been demoted several times, but his freeshoter company loves that he cares for them and lead from the front.
1 unit of Shot with officer attached
2 units of Raw Shot (Scanian Militia)
1 unit of Detached shot (Scanian Militia)
2 units of Trotters
1 units of Dragoons
Officer - Second Lieutenant Nils Skytte, he are an Officer and a Gentleman in fancy clothes that the ladies really love.
1 unit of Pike with officer attached
2 units of Shot
1 unit of Galoppers
1 unit of Dragoons
1 Regimenta gun
As we are in the beginning of the playtest and rules are adjusted from game to game I will not say much about any gaming mechanics, more than that the rules are based on the Lion Rampant mechanics;)
The game unfortunate once again ended in a Danish Victory...
Due to his good performance during the last two missions the Danish Officer Second Lieutenant Niels Andersen got promoted to Lieutenant.
