Nordic Weasel Games: Knyghte Pyke and Sworde - Medieval Skirmish Rules

Nordic Weasel Games: Blood, mud and shining steel. It's medieval warfare so personal, you might catch the plague! Knyghte Pyke and Sworde is a set of miniatures gaming rules for "mass skirmish" games ranging from 4-5 figures on each side up to battles with 30-40 figures each. As the name suggests, the rules are intended for dark age through medieval battles though I have included provisions for early firearms as well.

The game play is simple and straight-forward, allowing you to focus on the drama unfolding instead of digging through the rulebook every 17 seconds. The rules are strictly "1 figure equals 1 combatant" meaning the game is about raids, skirmishes and patrols. The stuff where we get to know each soldier and naming our heroes matter.
