I plan on using these rules for US versus Plains Indians Wars. Are there any rules changes people recommend when playing this time period. I understand these rules are not the most historicaly accurate for these rules.

The author himself published some tweaks specifically for the Indian wars in an issue of Wargames Illustrated. Other than that, if you want a more accurate representation of Indian tactics I recommend making 'skirmish', rather than 'attack', the free action for mounted plains Indians.

Simon Walker, who is no longer on this forum, wrote up some changes and they are posted on the Facebook TMWWBK files section.
