Margam Evans owns the rights to GDW's Engarde and publishes the current edition in both Softcover and PDF.

I've just kicked off a game of "GDW" Engarde, we have players from all over


His Majesty in his Divine Wisdom has consulted and conferred with Maria, Regent, His First Minister Cardinal De Richelieu and The Minister of State and Minister of War and determined an AUDACIOUS, BOLD and INSPIRED plan for the Army this Summer Campaign Season.

From June through August 1610, The Annual Summer Campaign Season, The King will Order a Field Army to conduct Field Operations as follows

Field Army
1st Division (1, 2 Bdes Foot) (RM,PM,13F,53F)
2nd Division (4 Bde, RNHB) (69A,GR,RNHB)
Frontier Division (Frontier Regts)
Dragoon Bde (GDMD,PLLD)

Members of these units will leave Paris with their units for three months for the Regular Summer Campaign Season, returning at the end of August for the Announcement of Military Appointments and plans for the next Year.

All Brigade, Divisional and Army Command, Adjutant, Aides to Staff Officers and Brigade Major Military Appointments currently stand empty.

The Inspectors-General of Cavalry and Infantry are scouring the Staff Corps for Brigadiers of daring and resolve to lead each Brigade this Summer and will also consider petitions from other Squadron and Battalion Commanders who wish to Volunteer their units for Frontier Duties Before and After the Summer Campaign Season.

His Excellency The Field Marshal is set on his plan, but may be persuaded via petition from Regimental Commanders to Substitute one Regiment for The Summer Campaign.

As always, The Borders of France are constantly patrolled year round by The Four Frontier Regiments and the Crack, Dashing and Illustrious Royal North Highland Border Regiment.

Players stout enough to Risk a Fatal Musket-ball have His Majesty's License at any point for leave-of-absence(or Senses!) from Paris to join the Frontier Units for the remainder of the current campaign season and maintain their positions with their Current Regiment.

Brigade, Regiment, Battalion and Squadron Commanders may volunteer all or part of their commands (Sqn/Bttns or larger) for Campaign duty at the Frontier for whatever remains of the Current (non-Summer) Campaign Season.

Don't forget to Duck!

May God Grant Success to the King's Army!

This deserves a good reception and a full roster of young, romantic upstarts from Gascogny to flood the streets of Paris with each other's gore.

A blast from the past but, alas, my arthritis has made me hang my foil on the wall….

Am glad people are still doing g this. It appears would be a blast. En garde was actually one of my inspirations for platoon forward as I am into moderns.
Good luck and would love to read reports
