Post Games using the gun powder lists
Has anyone used any of these lists to play some games?

Just interested in how they play for games during this period. I want to paint up a few units for the AWI, starting with two or three regiments a side, and am looking for a rule set that will play well at that size. I was leaning towards the Black Powder rules but although I really like them I am not convinced I will get the game I want with so few units.

Cheers

Steve

The guys from Germany (Olaf- leongrande) used them - I was asked about some AWI lists before Christmas but not had a chance to look at it properly yet as I have a load of old airfix models somewhere, and the new plastic sets from Wargames Factory (which we sell) are really rather nice and tempting

Thanks Rob. I downloaded the SYW and Nap lists and have been thinking about how I might use them as a starting point.

I have seen the Wargames Factory sets and they are quite nice but I am more of a Perry Miniatures fan and have a few boxes already. Just waiting for Alan to start on the militia set! Saying that, I do like the look of the new Woodland Indians set and would be interested in how they compare to Alan's metal range.

Steve

feel free to beat us to it then!

Apparently the WF AWI match really well with the Perry stuff according to some of our customers who have both - I have not even started assembling one yet! :shock: :mrgreen:
