Alde Garde 80 Years war painted miniatures
« on: December 16, 2021, 09:54:41 AM »
One of the periods we love to play was always the 80 years War as it is an important part of our Dutch history.
So when TAG came out with its new figures (sadly only infantry up to now) Peter, half of the Alde Garde, started collecting and painting. We use Pikemans Lament for now.
Some pictures underneath: The first two pictures are dutch troops, the 3rd and 4th Landsknechts in pluderhosen, the 5th English (TAG tudors), 6th and 7th Spanish and the last one artillery.
More info and some more pictures at aldegarde.blogspot.com

Yes, very nice, but Iím a bit puzzled by the choice of circular bases for multi-based figures

Lovely figures.

Are you using any particular mods for PL or just as they are written? I am working on some skirmishes from the same period on the opposite side of the North Sea and we had a first game earlier this week, but I'd be keen to hear what your approach is.

Emir, as we have just ready our used armies, we have had only a few games and used the rules as is. Maybe after playing more, we will made some adaptions or houserules.
