I am looking for some views about these two sets of rules to be used for 28mm Italian Wars early and late period/French Wars of Religion.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Hello Hunlion,

I cannot offer input on Bad War but we are the publishers of Furioso and it is a scale flexible system for 6mm to 28mm. You can read more on it by the author from links on our website page here: link

I hope this assists you and that others can assist you further.

Just clocked on that the rules were written by the same author.

I assumed that's why you asked! Wish I could answer your question, but I don't own Bad War. I have Furioso, but haven't played it yet. Had a game scheduled, but life intervened, and haven't managed to organize a game again sadly.

It does seem like fun though. A lot of period specific chrome, which is nice to see after playing the much more generic renaissance DBR rules.

Has anybody played Furioso?? They look quite interesting.

In 2007 I bought a ruleset 'To the banners: rules for Pike and Shot 1500-1700'. I was happy that at last there came out a new general Renaissance ruleset. They were meant for smaller scale actions.
The rules were written by Stephen Danes and published by Partizan Press.
I wonder if this is the same author and if 'Furioso' is an enhanced version of 'To the banners'?
