Flodden 1513
« on: January 20, 2018, 12:18:47 PM »
Anyone use BB to fight the Battle of Flodden. Obviously the English Bow / Polearm would work but what about the Scots Pike Blocks? Any thoughts welcome as I have a Scots Flodden army gathering dust.

Pikes are covered in the rules as pikemen were used as mercenaries, especially in the later battles, eg Stoke 1487 featured a large number of German pike on the rebel side. I would be inclined to class the Scots pike at Flodden as levy troops.
