News from 1898 Miniatures facebook page: the range will be available by late November.

@Atheling

It is published by the Pike and Shot Society. It has been developed from their ruleset Twilight of the Sun King. I think there are some AARs here, in LAF.

Good news about the figures, I fancy a few of them (for a skirmish game. NOT a Tercio!)

Ah, specific Pike and Shotte Society members have been very kind to me in my research for Ravenna so the least I can do is buy a copy of their rules! :)

I think there are some AARs here, in LAF.

EDIT: After a quick search the only AAR's I can find are in 15mm which doesn't really give me a flavour of what the battles would look/feel like in 28mm. I take it that the rules cater for 28mm?

Also, maybe it's time I took this question somewhere else as it's getting quite OT.

Thanks :)

Although most people use them with 15mm, I don't think they are scale specific.

Not really. I can ask Rafa. But I don't believe it will take too long now

Gentlemen
First of all, thank you for opening this tread devoted to the Spanish Tercios! Let me introduce myself, I'm Javier Gomez aka El Mercenario, with my brother Rafael the ones behind 1898 Miniaturas. As you know we were busy producing our new range, devoted to the Spanish Tercios 1618-1648, and I have to thank you also for your patience as it took almost a year to have this first batch, that is already available!

Lots of companies produce "generic" Thirty Years War miniatures, but not all the armies had exactly the same looking. After comprehensive research we decided to start this fine detailed and documented range including lots of variety, as the first batch have two different command groups and up to 24 different armoured and unarmoured pikemen and 24 different musketeers and arquebusiers! To be followed by more infantry, cavalry, artillery and personalities. Some pics attached, more at the website. I hope you like them!

Did the Spanish Army in say Florida have troops with pikes during this time period or were they mostly armed with firearms?

I guess both pikes and firearms but I'll check with the experts   o_o
