The Pikeman's Lament final Cover



Seems like Osprey released the Final cover for The Pikeman´s Lament, at least its up on Amazon.

I really like the cover by Mark Stacey, a Greate artist, and I glad that he made it Swedish as I requested as well as listen to my feedback fron the initial scetch.

As you can see I got a change the banner, the one on the scetch are absolutely a historical swedish one, but I wanted a Swedish Lion Rampant as that to are a known Swedish TYW flag as well as Sweden have Lion Rampant in its official CoA that you can see even on the back of the well known Vasa Ship from 1628 AND ofcourse to show the connection to the origin of the rules, the Lion Rampant rules by Dan:)

Also got the central pikeman to get a Gustavus Adolfous heroic look and not a bandage as you know Swedes never get wounded;)

Rules are due to release by the end of January 2017

  10. The cover art looks very good indeed!
    But, most importantly, it is a game I enjoy a lot. As one of the play testers I have played it many times. I really recommend it.
