Looking for resources on Elizabethan army.

I have scoured the internet for specific reference works on the Elizabethan army and have come up short on specific information. I own plenty of military books on general Renaissance warfare and armies but nothing specific on said topic. I've checked out references here on this forum also. Does anyo...

Re: Pike and Shot Formations vs Later Tercio

Thanks Snugglebunnies, this explains certain battles I've had where the results were not necessarily what I thought they might be.

Pike and Shot Formations vs Later Tercio

A couple of questions for RBS or others in the know. When a Pike and Shot formation(all things being equal) fights a Later Tercio formation: 1) A fire fight between these two formations would be won by the Pike and Shot because they have a higher number of muskets relative to those in a later Tercio...

Re: Please don't make me come and get you.

The problem with some players here, is that they are playing a tournament and only concerned about 'their points', getting, losing or :O heaven forbid a draw! Oh the humanity! If you are playing just to win a tourney, then might I humbly suggest that you are playing for the wrong reason. This is the...

Without tipping your hand...

I was wondering, without tipping your hand Slitherine, are there plans in the works for a game like Pike and Shot for the 18th century? P&S is such a beautiful game and extending it into the 18th century seems like such a natural progression. One can always be hopeful... ;)

Re: Please don't make me come and get you.

Please don't make me come across the map and get you. This is from the Digital League and I have blacked out the armies involved to avoid naming and shaming but this is absurd and rest assured it is not only this instance. More than half of my games have my opponent with troops within 5-10 squares ...

Re: 2D option ?

This is a good 3D fantasy game. If you enjoy 2D, Battle for Wesnoth might be more your cup of tea...and it's free.

Re: Initial Thoughts

+1 on the diplomacy...it is very weak. A robust diplomatic system adds immeasurably to the enjoyment of the game.

Re: Heavy Cavalry Frontage Question

This is a major issue with in game battles. There should be an option as to how to set up your army. What General would set up their army willy nilly.

Re: Mediterranean Agricultural terrain

While we're talking about terrain, can we please change the houses depicted in many terrain sets from bronze age houses and classical era housing to something reflecting medieval homes since the new DLC's are now into the early medieval period?

Different Seasons

Is it easily do-able in a future DLC or update to have an option to fight battles in different seasons? Would add immensely to the immersiveness of this game.

Re: Non-lancer cavalry tactics

RBS will likely correct me, but it is my understanding that FOG2 is based upon the P&S engine, yet cavalry behave differently in FOG2. As far as I'm concerned, the different types of cavalry in P&S behave exactly as I would expect them to(from what I've read). In FOG2 there is some curious behaviors...

Amazing Discovery!

So I just found out that like in P&S, if you press Shift+3 you get an uber close ground level view of your army! Absolutely beautiful! Richard and gang, you did an absolutely wonderful job on the figure models. Thumbs up!

So those DDOS, are they medium or heavy, light spear or sword, protected or armored? What's your best unit to match up against them? ;)
