Samurai-Pikeman's Lament
« on: April 03, 2021, 01:08:50 PM »
I have played about a dozen games of Pikeman's Lament over the past two years, and while they are a fun game, they bear absolutely NO relationship with the ECW.  However, I thought they may work for samurai games.  Has anyone tried this "change-up"?

There was a mod for Samurai warfare, by Michael Leck, in WSS issue 92.

Hauled my old Samurai collection (mainly Dixon) off the shelves.
With a little re-basing (9 figures) & some figures painted (6 figures)
I reckon on having enough for a try out of a game.
Will let you know what happens.
