FOG Renaissance Thirty Years War game

Played a game of FOGR today against Stephen using my Early Imperialist against his Swedes. Great game despite our being bit rusty with the rules and not actually finishing. Swedish Foot Brigades are very tough indeed definitely the creme de la creme of the period.

  5. Hi Gary

    Curious how you liike the FoG Pike and Shot rules. I have to admit they don't seem like my personal cup of tea at all, but curious what you see as their pros and cons...
