Hi guys, I've just released the fourth closed playtest for my narrative skirmish rules, 15XX, and I'd love to get more feedback!


These are narrative skirmish rules inspired by the pike & shot Renaissance era of 1474-1651.

☙ Covers the smallest actions of the era - that multitude of raids and skirmishes lost to history

☙ Designed to bring the narrative stories seen in Mordheim, Necromunda, Warcry, & Frostgrave to a historical setting

☙ Narrative and campaign focus around the "band of brothers" at a party level, rather than individuals

☙ Straight forward list building that doesn't require counting points

☙ Warbands range from 10-27 figures multibased onto 4-12 stands (but basing is very flexible)

☙ Uses a large grid to speed up play and allow the focus to sit on the action rather than debates over tiny measurements and if units are in cover or not

☙ Scale agnostic; 15mm plays on a 2x2ft board


If this sounds interesting to you, then I'd love for you to check out the closed playtest! Sign up here:


Focused on 6mm pike and shot and 28mm Frostgrave

Very interesting idea to use a grid in a skirmish game. Intriguing...
