Timmo UK – do you still have your home rules available for these rules so I can use them for ECW games?

Good for you! One of my favorite rule sets.

I've heard about them for years but never actually seen them.

Still in print, available from Amazon

I really like them, but having figure removal for casualties is a stumbling block because I have multi-based units.

Stoppage23 Oct 2020 4:22 p.m. PST

Page 47 states alternative method:

Use per phase:

20 casualties – remove figure
15 – 19 – treat as 20 (remove figure)
8 – 14 half – remove when next half suffered
1 – 7 – ignore

A lot of people use miniature dice to record hits on multi based units

I've seen where people used little circular counters – the dial type, for this, though counting up to 20 is a lot. Probably better to use a 20-sided die for that, or to keep track of it on paper.

If there were fewer, you could just put a few casualty figs on the table to represent that.

Wouldn't mind a copy of these as well if that's ok

Didn't know they were still in print. We still use them and in fact the first weekend of November we'll be having a Poles vs. Turks dust up based on the Deluge period.
