Hello,

I have some questions concerning the Swiss Army list:

1. Is it correct, that the only unit gaining any advantage by the "Vorhut" rule are Halberdiers in Open Order?

2. Are Open Order Halberdier Units of 4 bases effective or are 6 bases necessary?

3. Pike block 1: as I understand the "Massed Pike" rule ("a minimum of 6 bases that is at least as many bases deep as wide"),

there are only two valid formations for the pike block (3x3 and 3x4 bases). Or is there are switching typo and it should read "as many bases wide as deep"?

4. Pike block 2: Is it possible to form some kind of combined formation in the pike block, consisting e.g. of 3 bases with Heavy Armour and 6 bases with Light Armour? This would emulate the historical use of heavily armoured front rankers by the Swiss.
