Warfare Minis – More Marienburg Infantry Arrive In Bree

Oldhammer LOTR – More Floppy Hats in Bree

Buddies… welcome to another post.


More Marienburgers have crossed over the Misty Mountains Pass and are headed to the defense of Bree.


This time we got a block of pikes, some grenadiers, a general on horse, and a cannon.


Brushing up on my Pike rules from the Dogs of War armybook, I (re)learned that Pike can strike with all 4 ranks in any combat where the Pikemen have not moved (they have been charged, or in a second or subsequent turn of combat).
4 Ranks of attacks!
In the first turn that the Pikemen have charged they still get to attack with 2 ranks.
Pikes also get to strike first in any combat, despite being charged or Initiative.
Oh, and also, each Pikeman gets an extra attack against enemy cavalry on the first turn!

Well that's coming along nicely. It's a pity we never got to see more of the Empire in later editions beside Altdorf, Nuln and Middenheim as getting more characterful uniforms and army composition would help to sell the Empire as something other than the "Boring Balanced Faction that somehow keeps getting new models".

Then the world exploded.

Just great stuff! I am loving following your blog and this awesome alternate black powder fantasy.

Keep up the great work!
