Revised Twilight of the Sun King (1680-1720) and scenarios now available

An extensively revised version of the innovative Twilight of the Sun King rules and a scenario book are now available.

 

The Twilight of the Sun King: Birth of the Age of Reason rules focus on the period 1680-1720. The rules are aimed at re-fighting large battles with moderate resources and in a relatively short time. Units are ‘brigades’ of about 2000 infantry or 1000 cavalry. Basing, figure size or unit size are not important. All measurements, movements, ranges, etc, are in ‘base widths’ and the players decide what this will be.

 

The rules are simple to pick up but reflect the warfare of the period. For example, combat and morale are combined into a single dice roll. Play testers commented that you feel like an army commander and that the rules have a great period feel.

 

The first scenario book, Louis XIV at War, features 10 battles as various sizes and types from Western Europe.

 

Four from the War of the Grand Alliance (1688-1697) – Fleurus, Boyne, Landen/Neerwinden and Marsaglia.

 

Six from the War of Spanish Succession (1701-14) – Luzzara, Speyerbach, Blenheim, Ramillies, Almansa and Almenar.

 

A second scenario book will appear shortly with 10 battles from the Great Northern War (1700-1721) and the Ottoman wars of the era.

 

The rules and scenarios are published by the Pike and Shot Society and can be obtained from them, http://www.pikeandshotsociety.org/, and other retail outlets.

We are having continuing problems with our website. We had hoped to have pages dedicated to the rules up by now but that has not been possible. 

So we have a PDF scenario available for a 'what if' GNW engagement at Grodno in 1706. The Russians and Swedes operated in this area at this time but in the real war their was not a major battle. This scenario is a 'what if' based on this. This is available at the Yahoo group or directly from me. 

Contact me at wyreforestgamers@yahoo.co.uk if you want a copy.
