Did any Army Lists (and perhaps rules mods) ever get developed for the Koenig Krieg rules for AWI?

A little Google-fu brought up some references, but I was never able to find any actual data.

My version from 1985 has AWI lists.

1985? I didn't realize it had been around that long. I have V3 by Siege Works Studios (actual file name of the PDF indicates V3.2.0).

No.
It does not suit AWI. Way of fighting, casualties, inless much twicked, , just as well get something at least intended for it.

v4 which hopefully will be released this year will apparantly include AWI , how it plays I have no idea.

"There will be seven books in the new Koenig Krieg series, these are;

Koenig Krieg Ruklebook – with all the lists for the WPS/WAS/SYW, WBS 1730-1789
La Guerre du Roi – 1660 -1730
Freedom – American Wars 1776-1880
Rise of Nations – European Nations 1820-1880
Heresy – 1600-1660
The Sun Never Sets – Colonial wars 1820 – 1902.
Der Grosse Koenig – Campaign and Siege rules"

WoW! I didn't realize KK was still around! :D

I think KK might be fine for the very large AWI battles, but not for the majority of them. It's just a slightly larger scale.

I would suggest "The British Are Coming!", but I don't see them available right now… Maybe eBay?

There is the new set of AWI rules on kickstarter at the moment from the people who did the "Over the Hills" Napoleonic set , it's already 75% funded after only a few days.
And the sooner you all get it funded then the quicker I might see the ACW set that is due up next.

The British are Coming? A D100 based game. Uh, no.

Neal Smith08 Jun 2018 5:53 p.m. PST

Any particular reason? Do you think you are rolling a 100 sided die?

codiver08 Jun 2018 7:27 p.m. PST

No, you obviously roll percentiles, 2XD10s with one being a 10's die. I've looked at the charts; there appear to be a large number of modifiers, and combined with keeping track of the math translates into every roll being slow to calculate.

Neal Smith08 Jun 2018 8:11 p.m. PST

OK, suit yourself. It's not really that bad…

Not to thread hijack (but as that has already happened….)

The British Are Coming! are indeed available:

And there is a discussion group for it:

And if one looks in the Files section one will find a D6 version!
