18c Colonial Wargaming the Carribean and India
Which ruleset do you use for wargaming?
For the smaller encounters (skirmish size), I mostly use my own Skirmish rules set and have also used a tweaked version of Battlegames Zulu rules as well.For large battles when these occur I use a freebie rule set 'Weight of Fire' with a few 'in house' modifications.
And is possible to take a look on your skirmish rules?I have been looking for "Weight of Fire" because I read about it in other comments of your blogs, but all the links are dead. Do you know about a link that works?Thanks
Hi, skirmish rules can be found herehttps://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwW7pyxbU9oVdHp0dTJJeXpfOUU/viewAllan
Rather nice, those.
I have found the "Weight of Fire" herehttp://www.angelfire.com/wa/rogerswhome/webonmediacontents/WeightOfFireV3.pdfIs this?
that's the right one.
Another question, in your other blogs do you use the same rules?
No, briefly ...18th Century: Weight of Fire, plus my Skirmish Rules17th Century: Charge Yr Pikes, plus my skirmish rulesSaxons & Vikings - my own rulesRomans V Gauls - my own rulesWW2 - "Hit the Dirt" free set from the webcheersAllan
Thanks Allan. That rules look very interesting.I am working on a project similar than yours, for the Dutch Wars, 17th Century. It's not going to be a mono-thematic blog, because I am very lazy for beginning a new blog. I am painting Lurkio's miniatures, 9 years war, two armies, one for English and one for British, but there will be imagi-nations. So, as you suppose your blogs are being very influential and motivating.
