Has anyone played these rules? I have read elsewhere they can be grueling. Has anyone tried to play with them using 28mm? I own the book and have read it, but the basing requirements are really specific and that kept me from trying the rules out.

Played them in 15 and 28mm, pretty straight forwards and give a good game. Most of the 17th century games on the facebook page "Tales from the wargames shed" have all been played using FOG(R)

I have played them as well. They do give aa good game at least for 30YW. They are a bit complex, but, I found them much easier to follow than their ancients rules. That said, I am using Baroque for the period myself.

Thanks all. I am looking at Baroque as well since the Ottoman and Eastern European book for FOG:R seems to be out of print

They not exactly my "cup of tea" but give a decent game if at least one of the players is knowledgeable about the rules. We have played them for since they came out. Some tweeks would make them much better.

I helped design the army lists in the Cities of Gold book.
It was fun doing some play testing.
