Italian Wars Game

We played a game up at the club today using the George Gush Rules.
Part of the French army arrayed
2 French players attacking a Papal army commanded by Julius II (me of course!)

The Pope and his Guard in reserve

The French Advance

Landsknecht in the Papal employ hold a ford across the river

We enjoyed the rules and the French made the important breakthrough on the Papal left but the Landsknecht held the ford although a unit of Gendarmes had got into the rear of the Papal army and was threatening. So the Pope beliigerently marched off with his guard and household cavalry while leaving his "flock" to their fate.....
