After several years building up the armies I have finally re-fought this seminal battle of the Franco-Spanish war of the 1640s.

Beautiful game, must have been great to play. I'm sure I saw captain Alatrieste in there somewhere.

Yes Captain Alatrieste was certainly in the ranks of one of the front rank Tercios!

The most noble line was: "We thank your excellency for your generous offer; but we are a Spanish Tercio." (I paraphrase.)

Hi Simon – the battle looks wonderful. Just had a quick flip through, and will come back to revel in the detail later! Really like your blued-black armour technique and will be giving that a try. 👍

Great stuff. Simon's blog is always a good read.

A great-looking game, but I really like the King's musketeers.

Beautiful game and minis, I've always dreamed of playing Rocroi, but never gathered the courage to paint all the stuff…
More congrats to you, sir!
