Let me begin by saying that I am a fan of Pikeman’s Lament as fun skirmish game. However, there is one minor thing that I would like to improve upon: The ability of an officer to form units into formations and have them act together. One of the things I like about Sharp Practice is the ability of a leader to form his units/groups into formations and command them as one. This is missing from Pikeman’s Lament and I wanted to know if there is a set of rules that bridges this gap before I continue with my tweaking. I am seeking a set of rules that lets each player field and command a full company on a 1:1 figure ratio including the ability to form formations, etc.
I’m habitually tweak rules that I like, and Pikeman’s Lament is no different. We’ve already play tested my tweaks for mounted and dismounted Dragoons and I’ve been scribbling down some ideas for formations. However, if there is something else out there already, I’d like to look at that as well. So any recommendations are appreciated.
