Hi I was thinking of using The Pikemans Lament for mid 16th century.
I live in Jersey and there was a battle that took place in 1549 where a French invasion force was beaten by the local Militia who were armed with bow and bills,
Falconette cannons and a few calivers.

I was thinking for the Militia 4 units of Billmen, 1 unit of Calivers, 5 units of Longbow and 2 Falconette cannons.

The French would be 12 units of Arquebus and 8 units of Pike.

Can I use the stats from Lion Rampant for the Militia?

All the best
Paul

Hello Paul,That sounds like a very interesting project. My grandad was part of Force 135 and Mont Orgueil is one of my favourite castles so I will be pleased to see a project develop around a Jersey theme.One of the best things about the rules is their flexibility so you can easily use the stats from Lion Rampant for your militia. A lot of the core stats are very similar across the different rules for various units.Have you seen these previous ‘extra’ rules for the original rules? Most of these ideas were introduced into the later Pikeman’s Lament rules.http://duxrampant.yuku.com/topic/62/Dont-tell-him-Pike#.WK6suG-LTRYhttp://duxrampant.yuku.com/topic/5/Handgonnes-gunpowder#.WK6s3W-LTRYhttp://duxrampant.yuku.com/topic/69/Boom-shake-the-room-Artillery#.WK6s8W-LTRY

Nice ideea! 

Seems like a quite big game you are planning.

I would not mix troop types between LR an TPL as the activations are easier in TPL so the ones from LR would have a disadvantage.

for your Sugested troops migth i propose this OOB:

French, 2 companies each of 40 points, total 80 points
4 Pike @ 4 points each
6 Shot @ 4 points each 

Jersey Militia, 2 companies each of 34 points, total 68 points

1st Companie 
1 Elite Gallopers @ 6 points (calicers)
2 Aggressive Forlorne hope @ 6 points each(billmen)
2 Veteran shot @ 6 points each (Longbow)
1 Light Gun @ 4 points(Falconets)

2nd Companie 
2 Aggressive Forlorne hope @ 6 points each
3 Veteran shot @ 6 points each
1 Light Gun @ 4 points

You migth want to add 1 unit to each of the Jersey Milita Companies as thy at the moment have 6 points each less than the froggs...

happy gaming !

best regards Michael
