General Wargaming

What rules are you using now?

Posted by Alejandro on 02 May 2010, 02:16

Hello.
My question is, what rules are you using for playing?

Here, the gamers are using FoG (Field of glory).

I don't like rules with a lot of miniatures and I prefer skirmish rules.

Have you got any rules for playing skirmish for the medieval period?

Bye.

Any hints ?

I havnt played them but these rules get the vote of approval from many many people

The good thing about them is that once you buy the basic set you can get add on's for all sorts of historical and fantasy periods

the old rule "Cry Havoc" seems the best one...
Never played it but have read many many good comments.

i loved to play Cry Havoc many years ago. Easy game with paper warriors. The metal miniature version was to expensiv in these days cause you need 3 stage characters.
I m going to restart wargaming with the simple "Armageddon" Rules.
Based on the german RPG world "Midgard"

How stupid am I ?
NO answers needed, Zozan makes sure I know it exactly.. on a daily scheme.. :oops: :mrgreen:

Anyways, I forgot to mention the best game I came across thus far.
Look at this thread, and check out the linked rules documentation:
http://lasthussar.wordpress.com/2007/10 ... ame-rules/
"My kingdom for a horse" seems to be a very good medieval skirmish and 1-to-1 ratio type of game. I haven't played it, but the rules seem pretty good and easily customizable.
Best fact: It's free.
:thumbup:

What do you think about it, mates ?

PS - Do yourself a favor and don't print it in b&w.. :roll:

I'm writing some rules for Napoleonics and Medieval/Ancient.
As soon as they're done, I'll make a topic and anyone who wants them is more than welcome (they will be free of course).
Only a few pages long, and very simple.

I use Napoleon's Battles for large battles (units are brigades) and Lasalle for minor affaires (units are batallions)
Both rulesets have a god napoleonic feel! :horse:
