Our ECW rules, 'Victory Without Quarter', have a few holes in them.
For example, they make no mention of Highland troops which as we have Montrose's army, is a bit of a gap.
This has been fixed but there are other troop types that need addressing.

Notably, 2 of our armies have a "firelock" unit each – units without pike but armed with the slightly more efficient early flintlock muskets.
We need to tweak the stats. So far, it's been decided they should have lesser melee ability & indeed, compulsorily evade charging horse.
What else? Should ranges for their weapon be lifted? Should they get extra firing dice? Better morale?

I would think a small increase in their firepower, since the firelock could be loaded more rapidly. Effective range would be about the same.

Don't have it handy but someone has addressed those rules issues. Might check their FB group.

Didn't know there was a FB group. Just joined it.
