Beneath the Lily Banners

This set of rules which I don't know (yet) seem to be getting good reviews - this wargaming blog spells out the system - basing etc - I wonder what they're like for the 1660s and 70s as I should imagine they are mainly aimed at the 28mm Grand Alliance market but I might have to invest to find out. Incidentally Parkfield Miniatures do a tidy Glorious Revolution rang in 25mm if you are bored with your Dixon and Foundry figures... I'm gonna go for 15mms though - less money less space...
