Not Connard Sage

There is no perfect rule set. I maintain that this is because no-one now really understands how pike and shot armies really worked back then.

It’s entirely possible, from my reading, that no bugger back then understood how they worked either. Not even Gustavus Adolphus, he just got lucky. Until Lutzen obviously.

Forlorn Hope comes close, but they’re an awful slog. Which may be accurate. So do Gush’s WRG set, but they’re so 70s. I feel Gush may have produced a better set if he hadn’t been constrained by WRG’s… ‘system’ for want of a better word. I always wondered if Barker had stuck his oar in.
