This will surely be a question for Timurilank, but maybe others have ideas too.
Like Timurilank i am building a polish army at the moment. Mine will be 28mm and for the time of the swedish-polish war 1600-1629.
I see problems with the handling of the interaction of pike and shot. I am not interested of having mixed pike/shot elements. IMO an element with two shooters and two pikeman look silly. So i want the classic combination of one pike element with a shot element on each side to work.
DBA HX 2.2. had shot with +4/+4 and gave them +1 for flank and rear support by pike against cavalry moving into contact. Knights had a QK against shot and against pike.
How would you play it? I dont see, that players would use the combination like it should be used. - Moving into contact is ommited in DBA 3.0. - Shouldnt Pike have also some support from shot? - Is Shot save enough against Knights with a +5?
