Hussite Medieval Game

Post by Adam Hayes » Tue Jun 02, 2015 9:01 pm

Finally got all my Hussite wagons, gun wagons and palisades ready and on the table at the weekend. A good portion of our amalgamated medieval collections were given an airing.

An interesting game, lots of different troop types and a real challenge for the Imperialist player.

Cheers Jim. We tend to use the Piquet Band of Brothers rules for late medieval and early renaissance games. They work very well for games where the armies can seem to be unbalanced. Our heavily armoured imperialist crusaders were operating with an undisciplined advance and uncontrolled charge cards in their deck that had their players grinding their teeth! The lower quality Hussites had more of the useful cards in their deck and some fanatical morale effects. The only downside for this particular game was the inability of one side to win any initiative dice rolls which limited the actions they could take.
