Hi all;
I have rules for Medieval skirmish and big battles, but was wondering if there is a rule set for man to man combat, a few figures per side.

Thanks Rick;
I like the look of that.

Absolutely Melee.

You can get the Melee rules for free too, which is a bonus. We can thank Steve Jackson, the designer, for that.

Wargame Vault has it, and it comes with print and play hexmap, counters, etc..

Go to Boardgamegeek and get the free QRS too, which you'll be wanting.

Anyone figure out a rating for two-handed warhammers?

I'm thinking perhaps like the morning star, or close to that.

Could perhaps use stats for your normal, medieval or renaissance sword as well, if it is not a two-handed one, but is longer than the short sword.

Is "melee" the same as his old "man to man" (the precursor to GURPS)?

I ran across a thread that mentioned that, so I guess it could be.
