Free wargames rules ... are here!

It took me less time than I expected to create a new Free Downloadable Wargames Rules page on my blog ... and the new page is now up and running.


The page has links to a selection of the wargame rules that I have written over the past thirteen years, and readers are free to download and print copies for their own personal use.

A very good idea. Interesting to compare your different colonial rules, even though I remain determined not to be tempted into other periods!
Thanks for making them so easy to access.
Regards,
Arthur

Airhead,

It was a great idea; I just wish that I had thought of it myself!

All the best,

Bob

Arthur1815,

What I found interesting was that when I did the comparison between the different rules it showed how my thinking and ideas have developed over the last thirteen years.

All the best,

Bob

PS. One day I might get you to try colonial wargaming ... even if it is only the once!

Hi Bob,

This is a really good idea and it is interesting to see how your approach has evolved over the years.

I always liked Bundok and Bayonet - were they influenced by the Madasahatta years?

All the best,

DC

David Crook,

I wish that I had thought of the idea to create such a page myself ... but I didn't.

Bundock and Bayonet were my earliest attempt to recreate the sort of battles we fought during the Madasahatta Campaign. I felt that they worked quite well, and I understand that there are a few people who still use them.

All the best,

Bob

Bob,
If I ever do venture into 'colonial' wargaming, it will be the earlier period of the 'Free Lances' in Hindoostan, when mercenaries such as Benoit de Boigne and George Thomas raised forces of sepoys drilled according to European systems and fought both Indian princes and the HEIC.
18th century/Napoleonic warfare with added elephants!
Regards,
Arthur

Arthur1815,

It sounds like a very interesting - and very different - type of colonial warfare. If I had the time, I might be inclined to give it a try.

All the best,

Bob
