New War of Spanish Succession (1701-14) scenarios
« on: September 11, 2019, 12:01:37 AM »
I am delighted to say the 3rd scenario book for the 'Twilight of the Sun King' rules is now available from the Pike and Shot Society - https://www.pikeandshotsociety.org/

It features 15 battle scenarios from the War of the Grand Alliance (1688-97) and the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14).
In addition recommended optional and amended rules are included for pursuit, replacing commanders, using D6 and an alternative play sequence. Finally also includes are modified quick reference play sheets for the above changes and also one for this era only, i.e. without unit types not used in these wars.

This booklet features the following War of the Spanish Succession scenarios.

    CHIARI, 1701
    FRIEDLINGEN, 1702
    HOCHSTADT, 1703

Iíve since bought and taken delivery of the rules and scenario book No. 1 . The latter contains 4 x scenarios for the War of the Grand Alliance 1688 - 97 and 6 x foe the W.Sp. Succession. Having recently finished Marlborough, Englandís fragile genius by one of my favourite authors Richard Holmes Iím keen to see these rules in action.
