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

    https://tabletop.willphillips.org/projects/15xx/

    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

    I just sent out an email to those who have filled out the playtest form in the last two weeks, so you should have a link to the files now, Mike. Looking forward to your feedback.
