Twilight of the Sun King

Back in May this year I put together a 15mm Marlburian game to try out the Twilight of the Sun King rules from the Pike and Shot Society.

These rules are unusual in that they combine all the action into the morale system, on the basis that it was the morale effect of firing and charging which was the decisive factor in the battles of the period.

It's an interesting approach which took a little getting used to but provided a fun game.  They'll certainly be making the short list of rules for this period in my search.

Here are a couple of photos from the game, apologies for the poor quality but I only had my phone with me on the day...


  1. I would love to hear more about these rules.

    1. I am intending to do a first play summary but given my recent record on posting it may be a little while!

    1. They are a quite different but interesting take. I need to get them to the table again.
