Cost effectively, skirmishers do the job. Miners also sort of work, but you need a decent mass of them. dragoons/mounted riflemen do shit to them, and you're better off making culverins in any case.

Has anyone ever tried Gatling guns on them? I wonder how that would turn out.

Gatlings surprisingly doesn't do that well. Destroyes the musketeers, but Leather cannons destroy gatlings.

Great Bombards seem to do well against the combo, however.

Or, when in doubt, if you can't beat the combo, copy the combo!

Personnally, I would try green jackets (english skirms) + culvs or cuirassiers/goons for example. But anyway, we're talking about a unit that will be nerfed (or disappear? dont remember well) so .. :p
