Hello, I've lost my copy of the free WAB Forum Napoleonic rules, a clever member posted.

I've also changed computers and didn't save a copy.

Would anyone be able to help me out with a email copy?

I would be interested too…

Are those the rule that you cut out and glue over top of a WAB rulebook? I've heard of those but never actually played them.

I miss WAB in general. I like Napoleonics, but the most fun I ever had playing war-games was taking part in the HMGS East Coast WAB tournaments circa 2004-2006. There was a critical mass of dedicated players all coming together, and just the right number of armies. It wasn't that historically accurate as far as what happened on the table went, but that wasn't really the point of it either.

Late-stage WAB got away from some of the basics, and the whole thing ended rather ingloriously, but for awhile there it was lots of fun.

for those of us that ignorant of this, what is WAB??

Warhammer Ancient Battle
published by Warhammer Historical.

Warhammer Historical also published "Warhammer Waterloo" rulesbook (amazing book)

I have also the Waterloo book by Warhammer Historical. I think its one of the nicest perhaps alongside Kampfgruppe Normandy .
I have heard the rules are either the same or similar to the new Osprey set as they are done by the same author.

I havn't heard of the Free WAB set of Nap rules and I used to be a member of the WAB Forum.

Oh well, I wish I could remember what they were called. The author spent a lot of time on them.

The Waterloo book is quite nice.

They are the ones that were supposed to be glued into the book though, right?
I just want to be sure I'm not losing my mind.
