Nice to see quite exotic lists to be developed.
I am not very deep into that history, but I am missing Cavalry with lances, which still were used.
Maybe some infantry should be a minimum choice, since the kuruc shooters were quite famous.

at this late date I am not sure they had true heavy lancers. (any more than Turks, who never get the lance despite using them)  The Hussar veterans and motivated fighters should create a similar melee heavy unit. It does seem that during the Rakoczi period the Hussar regts were 1/3 lancers, but whether that should be represented or not is the question. I've always assumed "lancers" in Impetus means cuirassier or gensdarmes with lance, not irregular cavalry.

During the Rakoczi rebellion 1704-11 the hayduks are described as having pikemen in their regts, often due to lack of equipment, so possibly an option for poor quality P&M instead of T for hayduks.

to be honest my thoughts are inspired by images of the troops especially of the transylvanian armies. I currently read a little bit of the history of Gorge II Rákóczi and bought a book about the uniforms and flags in Hungary. The Husszars often seem to have both lance, shield and bow. But you are absolutely right if you doubt that everything was used. And moreover you are right, that there these troops may be represented correctly by CL with Impetus 1.

As for the Hayduks, I was more aiming to consider some Hayduks to be in the must haves, like 2-4 or 1-4 instead of changing the type.

The background is that with the list it is very likely that one only choses CL with bows and make the game a fire and run game.

Although this might be correct for the historical background I would leave only mounted armies to scenario gaming and consider to show, that the rural background of the Kuruc results also in infantry (T).

We don´t have something light CM in Baroque, have we?

SI are effectively light CM.

In general I agree about list minimums to force the character of the army, but Impetus seems to not like them. If I had my way about 50% of the army list would be compulsory.

Thanks for explaining me SI, I will have a look.

For the limits: Since this is your suggestion, I would recommend to suggest limits at your historical interpretation first. If Lorenzo disagrees, you will usually meet in the middle.
