Pike And Shotte To Kill A King arrived today

Lovely book. Good summary of a complicated period. As with many Warlord publications lots of lovely pictures and well written, but there is always the odd typo left in. I'm not an expert on the period but the lists looked good to me and more character, as you would expect for a period specific book, than rules I've used back in the 90's. I can't comment on the rules section as I need to read the Pike and Shotte rules first. This supplement certainly makes we want to do this and has awakened an interest in this period. I thought I preferred the Thirty Years War but I'm now not sure now. I have sizable English Civil War armies that were purchased decades ago, played with once and left boxed since. I think they may be coming out to play!
