Let me start by saying I've written a few rules and published my own. They were a small set, meant for those nights when you just wannna dig out and play.

They have a small, but loyal following. I've been working on their first expansion, and it's proving to be a complete pain. Not hard, just can't get into it. I say this because I respect anyone who writes rules then throws them into the aether. Wargamers are a cranky, contentious lot, so you better have a tough skin when you do this. Also, as much as anyone argues about historical wargames it really comes down to what a fellow gamer once said, "what movie do you want to play?

When I first read about a set of skirmish rules that could span ancients to modern, I was highly skeptical. How generic can they be and still be fun?

I got the pdf, printed all pages, and plunged in. I kept saying this. Initially I was put off because the author keeps going into excrutiating detail on every level to make sure you understand. It can be almost like reading a legal document. As much as a pain I found it, I got it. Even a beginner to wargamer could get it.

Thus, the pages. It can really be played from 5 figs to 15 a player. The basic concepts do work for multiple periods.

The period specific rules which the periods are split between ancient, early gunpowder and modern add the flavor. I was amazed by what was accomplished in a few rolls. Faust says it's not an IGOUGO rules set because each player is involved at every step by counter-rolls and the non-phasing player gets an interrupt, but it really is I activate a guy, then you, then me. But, as I said before, it is really impressive. I'm ready to get everyone in the group to "pick a period, and play".

Pros: Well thought out. I don't think you'll find something that isn't here. It makes a small investment in miniatures to test out all the myriad periods I like.

But casualties were starting to build up on both sides really. At this point we both started pulling back some beat up units to try and rally a bit to stave off defeat. This pike armed ashigaru had now crossed the river, and sent in a charge against my guys, sending a few more units off.

I had sent my Hatamoto unit off across the ford to relieve some pressure from the gunners, and try to get a few easy kills maybe. They broke one unit on the charge with no problems, but the Samurai archers drove them back in disorder.

At this point we decided to call the game, more then half of my units were broken or shattered, the Tokugawa were one away, but I never really had any unit the could break one of theirs. So I figure it's a minor victory for the Tokugawa force, they won but not decisively. The main things I learned leading up to the con is that I probably want to go for a bigger table to accommodate 6 players, and obviously will have 3 commanders per side.

Also seems a good idea to trim down the special rules a bit to make it a touch easier, perhaps a bit less terrain or at least spread out more. But it looks good so I want to use it hah. Really like how Pike and Shotte worked out, seems perfect for this kind of a battle, the weird basing I ended up using x25mm , seemed good as well.

My game for the convention is going to be loosely based on the battle of Mikatagahara.I hope they make cold war commander 2 soon too. Don't those formations look like a pain?

That set enables you to make unarmored Warriors with shields spears, swords and axes. It ticks a lot of the boxes Warmahordes did for me - interesting mechanics and decisions - while avoiding many of that games pitfalls.

The closest thing I have to one is my buddies back home, with whom I might be able to play via a virtual tabletop. I'm also considering a few fan-made expansions: For King and Parliament. At this point we decided to call the game, more then half of my units were broken or shattered, the Tokugawa were one away, but I never really had any unit the could break one of theirs. Great times.

Has anyone heard anything else on that?
