Mulling over doing this in 10mm.  Don't see too many problems with suitable figures but was wondering what rules to look at prior to ordering too many figures!

Anybofy else tried this or ahve any suggestions?

I imagine a lot of the ECW/LoA era rules could work for it. I'm sure For King and Parliament could handle it quite nicely, then there's the likes of Pike and Shotte and Twilight of the Sun King too.

+1 - assuming you are after gaming battles, not skirmishes?

I'm not too familiar with it myself, but Pikemans Lament is also popular for smaller skirmish scenarios in the period.

Thanks guys.

Will take a look at For King and Parliament. Fred's right, I'm looking for battles rather than skirmishes, so not sure the Pikeman's Lament would fit the bill. At least from the reviews i've seen.

I like Field of Glory Renaissance - FoGR - myself - they capture the look and feel of the period very well - I suspect that in 10mm they would look very good visually as well.
I particularly find the effect of even a few mounted units on a larger less well disciplined mostly foot army works well and probably would reflect the nervousness of the rebels to Royalist mounted troops (even Dragoons) very well.

Thanks, Mark.

Not a big fan of the original FOG but will have a look at this variant.

I'd agree on the FoG Ancient & Medieval set - FoGR is a much better variant - I think Richard Bodley-Scott had a much freer hand its development. I've played a lot of it in 15mm and 28mm and it plays well, and just as importantly it actually looks like a renaissance battle on the table-top (or at least what we belive they looked like from the period woodcuts).
I particularly like the way that Tercios are portrayed and operate.

Hi

Totally agree with Mark, can't put my finger on why exactly but FOG R 'felt' much better than FOG A&M to play. That said I have moved on to 'For King and Parliament' for my ECW games and they should work well for Monmouth's Rebellion (bearing in mind that there was only one actual 'battle').

I think you will find that DGuy was looking at Sedgemoor and the 1685 Rebellion a few years ago: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,14978.0.html 

Like us NZ based Pendrakeners he uses For King and Parliament as a ruleset. They are a great set of rules  Thumbs up

Most of Bill's stuff is recorded on his very useful blog at https://inredcoatragsattired.com/

However it doesn't appear to be working currently...I am going to contact him to see if he can get it up and running again as I never got to look at much of the very useful material he has very kindly found time tio post there covering the 1630 - 1700 period.

I have seen him post on the forum recently so he is around.

Cheers

I play the LoA period using Pike and Shotte, I find they give a fun game with lots of flavour. For a smallish, uneven battle I have played Killiecrankie a few times now with different people and have always had a satisfying game using these rules. Even when I lost to the Jacobites  Grin

The lates in Bob Cordery's Portable Wargames series has been published and, IIRC, has a bit on the Battle of Sedgemoor.

I have played FOGR. Great if you like putting your head in a nutcracker. Yes, the armies look great set out at the staart of a game. After that it becomes "when will this tedium end?"

That certainly was not my experience with FOGR.
