With the timescales (1 bound = 5 seconds) any early gunpowder weapons are going to be one-off (maybe two-off) devices in any normal length game.
Anyone tried adding them?

From the long silence, I'd say 'no' is the answer.

The local group tried the game with English Civil War parameters, including muskets. Worked ok. Did not like the whole system so did not follow up.
It is easier to just use DBA/HOTT with single figures on the bases.
