Thanks, going to follow this up with three more related blog posts:

1. How the new rules played with regard to the Eastern Wars modifications.

2. A Donnybrook faction list for the Ottomans which should appear on the blog over the next week.

3. A 'How to' on building defensive wagons for an Eastern wagonburg.

A reminder of the game

How viable would these rules be for playing the earlier Eastern wars ? I'm thinking the Deluge era circa 1650's. Do they feature rules for skirmish cavalry . I'm not sure if Cossacks or Akincis would fall within the blade or bullet cavalry definition used in BLB

The would be fine. Akinjis and Cossacks fall within the new category of Tribal cavalry. All of the amendments in With Talon and Claw are written specifically with GNW/Eastern wars tactics and troop types in mind.
