There are quite a few here that you could take a look at


For toy soldiers, I like the All The Kings Men rules, though not specifically ACW.

I actually went to Thor Trains(I love their site for Army Men) thanks for that PDF link! and looking over the one you posted Paul.

I would recommend Black Powder Rules and the Glory Hallelujah! supplement. Hope it helps.

As always, comments are appreciated.

Take care

What will those two books cost me?

If it's Warlord's Black Powder, they run about $30 USD a book, last I checked.

#Paul Collins:

Check the files at the ATKM site--I wrote an ACW variant called "All Mr. Lincoln's Men". Ken liked it.

Bumbydad, the ATKM is no longer online. I have the ACW variant and would be happy to forward it if you send me a PM.

Sindri, Neil Thomas' One Hour Wargames and Wargames – An Introduction both have simple rules that work well with Army Men figures.
