If you see Mr Thomas, you don't know me o.k.!.

Sooooooo, i have been working on my Pike and Shot and Fantasy rules for a while, honest i have!. However i have become rather distracted by:

This has filled my head with lots of 'what if'' ideas, mainly:

 'What if i could tweak the system to Pike and Shot fantasy?'.
'What if i could include all the different troop types in my setting with minimal special rules?'.    'What if i could bolt on a magic system?'.

   Well guess what.....I have!.

 If you look in the tabs at the top of the page you will see a new tab containing all the rules required to play fantasy Pike and Shot One hour wargames!. Have a look and shudder at my ambitious stupidity!!!!.

There is more to add, the material is pretty rough, it needs a ruddy good tarting up so please excuse the mess and the Shire specific troops are yet to be added, i want to base and photograph them before i write them up so it may take a while, in the mean time the system still works for generic Pike and Shot. So please take a look, any and all feedback welcome!.

 Oh and

I hope your 2019 is full of dice, fun and 'little men'!!!.

.......'till next time......


  1. I think Mr. T would be very proud (Mr. T ...wait, isn't that from summit else?)
    I love the spell names - and am keen on hacking the mis-spelling system such that the players actually have to write out the spell name, and spell everything correctly, in order for the spell to work (that's a lot of 'spell' s).

    1. If only Mr T wrote rules!. The idea for writing out the spells is great, sounds like one for 'liquid refreshment' led gaming sessions!. However I have proved many a time on this blog my own skill at spelling would get me nothing but misscasts!!.

  2. Looking good, Sprinks. I'd like to try your mods with the Horse & Musket OHW rules as well. I like the rallying mechanism you've used looks neat. I am going to post a link to your blog on mine. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, that's very encouraging. Let me know how this works for horse and musket games.

  3. HNY Mr Sprinks - nice to see another OHW convert.
    Thanks for your comment - been taking an enforced hiatus from gaming due to the intrusion of "real life". Hope to be back sometime soon.
    All the best

    1. Yep its one hour or bust round here at the mo. Glad all is well, life has that funny habit of getting in the way!. I'm hoping you will get the chance to roll some dice soon.
