One of the decisions I've always been stuck by is which rules to use. I must have played them all nearly. What I always liek in rules -
1) No figure removal
2) Masse look, I just don't think troops based in single file look right in 28mm
3) Flexible basing
4) Simple system that can play ok with 5 -6 units a side or 20 untis a side
5) I like battlions, with lines columns and squares but soemtimes I may like to play the odd brigade game.
Well recently it seems to be boom times for Napoleonic rules, with the publication of Napoleon, Blackpowder and soon Lassalle ( which I am really looking forward to ) and Republic to Empire.
