I am planning a 2mm project for the 80 and 30 years wars and wondering about the footprints of the Tercio and the pike and shot battalions used by the Dutch and Swedish.

I found some diagrams floating on the internet but I would much prefer to have some literature. Can anyone give me a suggestion in which books this topic would be discussed?

According to those diagrams, the pike sections (of a full-strength unit) would be:

40m x 30m Elongated Tercio
20m x 50m Deep Tercio
30m x 40m Square Tercio
20m x 20m Dutch Battalion
30m x 12m Swedish Battalion
