Description

Men of Iron is a play-oriented series of games covering the wide spectrum of land battles from, roughly, the era just prior to the first Crusades to the arrival of gunpowder. The fourth volume in the series, Arquebus, focuses on the battles fought in Northern Italy between France and Spain, among many others, who were fighting for control of Milan and other cities, between 1495 and 1525. This was a turning point in warfare, where hand-held firearms — the arquebus (mostly) — appeared on the battlefield in noticeable and effective numbers and the pike-armed square formations of infantry replaced the armored, mounted men-at-arms as the key element of battle effectiveness.

A complete game of Arquebus include:
  • Two 34" x 16" game-maps, back-printed
  • 840 counters on three sheets
  • Two identical 11" x 25.5" Player Aid Cards
  • One 8.5" x 11" Player Aid Card
  • One Rules Manual
  • One Battle Book
  • Two ten-sided dice
