Simon Miller (of BigRedBat's Shop ) is developing a variant of his "To the Strongest!" ancient/medieval rule set. The Jackson Gamers are participating in the play test development and ran a game this past Thursday.

Please drop by Col Campbell's Barracks for a brief report: link

Montgomery looks to be a popular scenario these days (or is it just that it is the default play test scenario for Mr.Miller's rules?).

It is the default scenario included as part of the play test rule package.

It was included because there was an excellent base scenario done by Bob Giglio in his second ECW scenario booklet, and it had also been used in a couple of other recent rule sets (I think "This War without an Enemie" was one) so people could compare.
In addition it is a very playable size, with enough units to act as a reasonable test of the rules, while not requiring playtesters to have the full armies for Marston Moor!

Montgomery is also the scenario in 'To Defy a King'.
It's a good size for a wargame, fairly balanced, and has troops entering after the start, so is interesting.

… it had also been used in a couple of other recent rule sets (I think "This War without an Enemie" was one)…

Yes, we have played it a couple of times using a couple of different sets of rules, starting with WWaE for that reason. BTW, I love the Giglio scenario books.
