Wargames Illustrated: Dadi & Piombo: Miniature Wargaming Rules - Baroque - Europe at War 1550-1700 Reviewed

Wargames Illustrated reviewed the previously Wargame News and Terrain covered Baroque ruleset and it sounds to be certainly worth a look and game according to the reviewer!

Overall, Baroque seems to be a solid ruleset for the period. The book is well produced, and the rules show evidence of considerable playtesting before publishing, something that cannot be said for many of the new rulesets being produced at the moment. Check their full review here

Dadi & Piombo: Baroque is a set of wargames rules, based on the Impetus system. The rules allow you to play with miniatures the wars that ravaged Europe from the mid XVI Cent to the end of the XVII Cent. 

Baroque is easy to learn and combines fast, enjoyable play with historical accuracy thanks to some innovative game-mechanics. Baroque can be played in all scales: 28mm, 20mm, 15mm, 10mm and 6mm, and you won’t even need to re-base your armies. This rulebook includes the rules (with many examples and diagrams) to play field battles. It includes 7 army lists to start play right away (check for more free beta lists in website)

The link to the WI piece on Baroque is not much of a review; barely qualifies as an overview.

Hello Jonathan, the review was published by Wargames Illustrated as a review so I see it as one although a very brief one. Would be interesting to see a more thorough review including some gameplay of the mechanics. Cheerd
