Avec Infini Regret is a series published by French magazine Vae Victis publishers, and based on Ben Hull's Musket & Pike Battle Series — published by GMT Games.
On 3 October 1569, the two armies faced off near Moncontour. Gaspard de Coligny did not want to engage in battle, knowing he was outnumbered. However, German mercenaries among his troops were unhappy at not being paid and precipitated the movement. The Catholic troops were better prepared, greater and more heavily armed and easily pushed back the assault of the Protestants who were forced into a disorderly retreat.
Although it barely lasted two hours, this battle resulted in between 6 000 and 10 000 men dead or taken prisoner on the side of the Protestants compared to 1000 for the Catholics. The Swiss soldiers of the Royal Army spared no lansquenets in retaliation for La Roche-L’Abeille
