<snip>Its the interdependence between pike and shotte that needs to be represented - pike protecting shotte from cavalry and/or other pike and shotte protecting pike form shotte - that is the cornerstone of the warfare of the period.I am making these comments in the contexts of the English Civil Wars and not the Thirty Years War and my use of the term "semi-fictitious" was unfortunate with hindsight; but I'm not persuaded of the justification for having separate pike units and shot units as the basis for any army that took part in the civil wars in England - or Scotland for that matter. Like Mikeland, my own armies - Covenanter and Scots Royalist - are for collecting only. I would love to find a set of rules that would lead me to take up gaming again. It would be great if those rules were the Black Powder supplement. I think what Warlord has done for my favourite period has been brilliant.
