The Pikeman's Lament appears on Amazon



Today Dan made me aware that The Pikeman's Lament is now available to pre-order on Amazon, and presumably in many other places too.

The cover shown is just a mock-up, not the final one that Osprey will use, as that is an original piece of art specially commissioned for our book.

Please note that where is says 'written by a leading games designer and a period expert', the period expert presumably means me. That is not my own description of myself, don't worry! I know my place in this life, and it is not a 'period expert', the same goes for Dan as he say, althought I really think he is a leading game designer;)

 Publication is set by Amazon to 26 January 2017.

  8. Excellent news! Definitely on my must-buy list. So I have some time to paint up my GNW miniatures that have been collecting dust. How should I base them? LR uses individual basing but I see a variety of basing in the AAR pictures.

    1. Individual basing work fine, we don´t want to force any one to base in a specific way for our rules.

      But I have based my minis using my 1,2,3 style, you can read about it here:
