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.

  1. Nice looking armies on the table.


  2. Remembered my camera for once !

  3. Every new FoG:R report you have posted remember me how I hate my lazy, lazy painting pace...

    Wonderful pics and wonderful game as always.


  4. I'm more and more interested in the period and the rules. Rats

  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...


  6. Hi Peter

    give me a shout at and I will try to outline (too much for blog) thoughts on FOGR & why I like it despite not really taking to Ancients version
