George Gush 1420-1700 rules

Anyone tried using George Gush 1420-1700 rules with dbm based elements? How did you get on? I am considering them to fight the Burgundian Wars. DBM does not give us a good game for the period.


  1. My favourite ever rule set! I think that would work fine, but most of the fun for me is removing figures as they get wasted :)

    1. I know what you mean but my friend's armies are based for Dbm as elements so we have no choice.

  2. I don't see why it wouldn't work. I use DBM base sized units for Pike & Shotte. I always enjoyed the Gush rules. They seem to have passed the test of time.

  3. George Gush wrote the best of the WRG rules, he clearly knew his stuff and attempted to capture the period.

  4. Great rules - I played mine with 40mm wide bases for a long time, 4 men for pike and swordsmen, etc - and 3 men for shot units. 2 men for things like forlorn hope or skirmishers. That is, of course, 15mm (and the same basic frontage as DBx).

  5. Can't see why it wouldn't work. I played the Gush rules a lot in the '80s - they generally gave a good game.
