This is not a thread for those who wish to bash DBR. I like them and want some advice from those who know the Renaissance period well on some tweaks to the lists.
I am currently building an army for Julius II in about 1506 when he campaigned against Bologna.
Now in the book I am reading it says that he hired 4000 Swiss mercenaries. Plus the fact that the Swiss Guard was created in January of 1506. So with all of this in mind I thought the Italian Condotta list really doesnt represent the army of Julius very well at all.
Has anyone had any experience creating there own ,ists for DBR? I waas thinking about basing one on the Gush list for Italian States which I think is much closer to the mark.



I know people that have done that type of conversion, and not seen any outrageous results. All you really need to do is convert the # of troops into equivalent # of bases, rounding
up or down.
12 close order foot would therefore become 3 elements and etc…
