I ave read the other thread about the ECW and I have to agree. They should be treated different since the operated different than earlier pike and shot armies. As the pike and shot units worked together from what I read.
I can understand the separation in the rules if working on a smaller scale, suck as 1 regiment is represented ie; you have Lord Brookes regiment of foot, commander Lord Brooke, 1st unit Major pike and shot, 2nd unit Captain, etc, etc, etc.
But I want to make each unit a regiment and each regiment have 2 shot and 1 pike. So here is my question,
Has anyone done, worked with, played with stats, such as this? I also not a big fan of "I hit your unit 3 times so 2 hot are hit and 1 pike" type of hit. I prefer the unit loses hits as a whole and the fire/ melee go down with out any sort of extra figuring.
Does this make any scene?
