Henry V woke up one morning and was surprised to find that Switzerland had invaded England. "Blimey" said Henry, "Makes a nice change from killing French guys all the time, guvnor. Let's teach these overly-neutral blokes how we win wars here in merry old England. For God, me, and St. George!"
I choose 500 pts a side, a small game for Field of Glory but I'm using 28mm figures on a 6x3 table. Most FoG games are played in 15mm.
England: 2 BG's of 4 Dismounted men at arms each. 3 BG's of 8 Longbowmen each. Deployed in classic archers/m@a/archers, the way we all know and love.
Switzerland: 4 BG's of 8 pikemen each, a BG of 8 light crossbowmen and another of 8 light hand gunners. They deployed all of their pikes in the centre with a light unit on each side.
Note that I'm talking bases, not individual figures. Heavy troops are 4 to a base, lights troop bases have 2 each.
|English on the left, Swiss on the right. The swiss had to deploy in some|
fields which slowed them down but didn't affect their fighting prowess.

He counts as an Inspired Commander.
|Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of war! This dog, being a terrier of|
Scottish descent, is obviously against the English. Plus one of his
ancestors is German so that makes him like the Swiss even more.
|The Swiss army. Look at all those pikes, good for sticking|
|The English army, not looking terribly threatening at all.|
Plus they're all having tea.
|The two armies, ready to get physical.|
|These pikemen smash right through the English army and|
march on the English camp.
