There will be six army list companion books for Field of Glory: Renaissance, covering the armies of Europe and the rest of the World throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. The first book, Wars of Religion, will be published at the same time as the rules, and covers the armies of the first half of the 17th century in Western and Central Europe, in particular those of the Thirty Years War and English Civil War.
The second book, Trade and Treachery, covers 16th century warfare in Western and Central Europe, notably the Italian Wars and the various conflicts between Catholics and Protestants in the initial turmoil of the Reformation.
The third book, Clash of Empires, covers Eastern Europe and the Middle East in the 16th and (in some cases) 17th centuries.
Below is a first attempt at an unofficial points system for the Napoleonic game – Lasalle.
Lasalle contains a number of set army lists for the main armies. They provide a great introduction. But they only reflect a fraction of possible lists. Playing the same few army lists repeatedly against each other could get dull fairly quickly.
This points system below tries to address this.
Using this points system and the excellent (and now free) Nafziger army lists, players can construct any number of armies that are consistent in size with the army lists in the Lasalle book.
I would love to say that the points system above was based on careful consideration of the relative merits of units, simulations of performance and a large number of test games. Alas no. Instead it was a rather crude attempt to back-fit the army lists in the book. What points system could generate something so that the Core Lists were all about the same points, and the Support Lists were about the same points?
