WotR Tudor Army

Post by gkrashos » Sun Sep 14, 2014 8:34 am

New to FoG and marrying up a bit of history with the wargaming stuff in the books.

Trying to work out why there are no pikemen allowed in this army given that historically there were clearly continental pikemen present at Bosworth. Is this an error or "just the way it is"?

I'm pretty sure there were no pikemen, on any side, at Bosworth. If I remember correctly there were some at Stoke Field, hence their presence in the list for a Yorkist Pretender army.
The Tudors didn't really keep up to date with developments on the continent but mercenary pikemen were hired by Henry VIII.
