Fornovo to Sedgemoor

This is a set of rules for playing tabletop wargames set in the Pike and Shot era of European history; from the end of the Wars of the Roses to the introduction of platoon firing under Marlborough. This is roughly from AD 1450 to 1700. Many of the game mechanics are based on those introduced in the Wargames Research Group 1685-1845 rules. A typical game will have 6-12 units per side and take about four hours to play.

One model soldier represents 20 actual men. One cannon limber or wagon model represents 4 actual guns or wagons.

One move represents an undefined and variable amount of time. A typical game lasts 8-12 turns.
