Are there any AoS rules that you'd recommend for solo play?

I enjoy these rules by THW.

Thank you, rb. I should have mentioned rules that work for 1:1200 scale.

I'm currently using a modified for non-hex table "Wooden Ships & Iron Men." But with the writing of movements required in WS&IM, it doesn't lend itself to solo play.

I play And A Bottle Of Rum with those Pirates Of The Spanish Main ships. I only use about half the book, because I only use the ship to ship combat rules and skip all the land based "roleplay" stuff.

There are a couple of solo systems for WS&IM out on the Net. Give them a Google.

Ares Sails of Glory can be played solo. There are solo rules and scenarios available. Look on The Anchorage fan site.

Form on the Admiral's Wake can be played solo. If you want I can get the contact info.

probably any game that uses card/chit activation might be enjoyable solo. Such as

Kiss me Hardy

Form Line of Battle
