Pike and Shot - Tercio to Salvo

Product Info

Important!
Pike and Shot and its expansion Tercio to Salvo are no longer available. They have been replaced by Pike & Shot: Campaigns. This new stand-alone release includes all of the content of Pike & Shot and Tercio to Salvo, as well as a host of new features, and all of that for the same great price! 

Tercio to Salvo follows the development of European warfare from the end of the Great Italian Wars in 1559 until the Swedish entry into the Thirty Years War in 1629, and adds two new playable nations, Russia and the Dutch Republic.

During this period, peace did not reign supreme in Europe. Far from it.

Within 3 years of the end of the Italian Wars, France dissolved into a series of civil wars between Catholics and Protestants, known as the French Wars of Religion. These did not end until 1598. The Dutch War of Independence from Spain (the Eighty Years War) began in 1568 and continued until 1648, supported by other Protestant nations such as England. In the north there were numerous wars between Sweden, Denmark, Poland and Russia, and in the south-east between the Austrian Holy Roman Emperors and the expansionist Ottoman Turkish Empire.

Tercio to Salvo includes 10 historical battles from the French Wars of Religion (Dreux  1562, Moncontour 1569, Coutras 1587, Arques 1589, Ivry 1590), Danish-Swedish wars (Axtorna 1565), Ottoman-Habsburg wars (Sisak 1593), Eighty Years War (Nieuwpoort 1600) and Swedish-Polish wars (Kokenhausen 1601, Kircholm 1605). Nine of these can also be played in multiplayer mode.

It also includes 49 brand new army lists (with new unit graphics for the new nations and units) for an infinite number of “what if” single player and multiplayer random map battles. Together with the 24 army lists from the TYW campaign, which are included so that the new nations can fight them, these cover the different phases of development from 1560 to 1648 of the armies of Russia, the Dutch Republic, Catholic and Huguenot France, Austria, Germany, Spain, England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, the Ottoman Turkish Empire, Poland and Transylvania.

Over this period European armies evolved gradually from the huge pike keils and gendarmes of the Italian Wars, to the later tercios, smaller Dutch-style pike and shot battalions, kurassiers and arkebusiers of the early Thirty Years War, Gustavus Adolphus’s initial experiments with salvo firing and regimental guns, and then the final stages of development in the middle and late phases of the Thirty Years War. The army lists allow players to explore the tactical nuances of each phase in this historical development.

In addition, skirmishes have been updated to offer additional customisation options, including allowing the type of territory to be selected - Agricultural, Hilly, Wooded or Mountainous - to provide an even greater variety of tactical challenges.
