Does anyone know of a Pike & Shot period variance on the Command and Colors type rules? I was wondering if anyone had come up with some rules for it as maybe House rules or something? Thanks.

MIniature Wargames no 402 (October 2016) had a free set of ECW C&C rules called 'Memoir 1643'.

Hope that helps.

There are two different sets available on the Prometheus in Aspic blog.

Yes, I have at least three different sets people have done, including some with full new decks of cards etc.

Just Google.

Hey, thanks for the info! I don't know why I go through periods where I become fascinated with the era. Maybe it is because it is a juncture of weapons systems, pike and musket, halberd and arquebus, caracole and cold steel, immobile artillery and lighter pieces. So much to coordinate. I think plastic pieces would be best: pikes would be blocks with spines sticking up twice as tall as the solid block and muskets as solid rectangles played lenghwise front to back on either side of the pike block. I need to find the MW issue. Thanks again. Now back to my Napoleonics (first love).
