Action on the Garigliano 1503

Postby olicana » Fri Jul 14, 2017 9:35 am

Gonsalvo de Cordoba was possibly the best commander of the Great Italian Wars and the Battle of the Garigliano in 1503 was his 'Crowning Mercy'. Of course, once one makes a scenario out of a battle, historical reputation is no defence against a dice toting opponent.

IMHO, unless a scenario is so rigged with special rules and action bans that it's not a game anymore, re-fights rarely follow history but, third time out this one looks something like the progress made historically - is one out of three bad?

Report (and a few pics of arguably the prettiest wargame period there is) here:
