Warlord Games is now taking orders for their first 30-years War supplement book for Pike & Shotte, entitled The Devil’s Playground. And as usual for a Warlord Games supplement, if you order from them directly, you can get an exclusive miniature. This time it’s Count von Hosenschlange. Quite a rather dashing fellow, and a mini that’d be good in multiple game systems.
From the announcement:
Now available for pre-order, our very first Pike & Shotte supplement covers the devastating Thirty Years War.
The Thirty Years War was a series of conflicts that ravaged large areas of Europe, especially the German provinces, from 1618 to 1648. These conflicts centred on the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperors, Ferdinand II and Ferdinand III, and their opponents. Although viewed by many as a religious war between Catholic and Protestant nations, its roots and causes were also politically motivated. The combination of religious fervour and the political ambition of the European superpowers were to pit vast armies and mighty leaders against each other. The devastation caused by decades of fighting had truly turned Europe into the ‘Devil’s Playground’.
This supplement for Pike & Shotte describes the history, armies, personalities and battles of the Thirty Years War. Included are scenarios based on some of the famous battles and army lists for the main protagonists.
As with all rulebooks and supplements purchased directly from Warlord you receive a free exclusive miniature and with The Devils Playground it is the master swordsman Count von Hosenschlange.
A copy of the Pike & Shotte rulebook is required to use this supplement which is our rulebook covering the Italian Wars, Tudor Wars, Thirty Years War, English Civil Wars, and The War of the Grand Alliance this 208 page hardback book is chock full of exquisitely painted miniatures, army lists and battle report.
