Hello everybody.

Im wery keen to start a project with the Landsknechts and Swiss from Old Glory, They have some really great sculpts, full of character.

What rules (Impetus/Baroque) works best with the two forces, and witch lists are most usefull?

Thank you in advance.

Tim

It depends on when your Swiss and Landsknechts are fighting. Italian Wars definitely Impetus. Wars of the Religion are probably better suited to Baroque but Impetus would do a decent job. One of the problems with Baroque that I didn't like was that the basing frontages are not compatible with Impetus so that the units don't easily move back and forth. Of course, you could always model Baroque units using the Impetus basing frontages.
