Renaissance Period

The renaissance period covers early modern warfare from the end of the 15th Century until the end of the 17th Century. It was period of transition in warfare. The introduction of effective firearms, the replacement of the galley with the sailing warship and a revolution in fortification and siege craft.

Back to a fringe period in Glasgow and District as the Annual DBR Competition has stopped. Most 15mm players are awaiting the Renaissance version of FoG.


Other rules used for the period are Principles of War and Warhammer Historical English Civil War (WECW). Players tend to use 15mm armies although the advent of WECW has again brought 25mm figures back onto the tabletop.

A recently fought scenario based on the popular Polish armies using DBR with 25mm figures.
