Dadi & Piombo

There have been a lot of conflicts across Europe over the centuries. There certainly were a lot from the 16th through the 17th centuries. It's those dates that Dadi & Piombo have created miniatures rules for. They've placed them in Baroque, a new miniatures rulebook that's now available in their webshop.
