The new editions v3 and v4 of Koenig Krieg Rules, released over the last few years by Siege Works Studios, what do we think of them?

After a few years of playing how do we think these later updates compare with earlier editions of Koenig Krieg (that were excellent rules for this period in my view).

Thoughts, opinions, experience?

I'm an old fart so haven't changed to the new rules. Why fix what isn't broken

Version 3 is beautifully illustrated and loaded with plenty of examples. The division of the rules into infantry, cavalry and artillery sections creates a little confusion and overlap. The presence of an index does help but sometimes you still cannot find what you want right away. The rules are expanded so you can game 18th century games in areas other than Europe and North America.

Version 4 expands the game into periods other than the 18th century. They plan supplements to detail each period. Another beautiful and well illustrated set of rules but I have not dived into it too deeply because I am satisfied with version 3 and use other rules for the non-18th century.

Have version 2 and 3, very little difference between the two, a couple of minor changes and some additions to the nationalities. I've not seen it but rumor has it that version 4 is expanding wider covering more periods. IMHO if you try to put too much into it you lose the individual flavor that makes the rules fun. Can't get 10 pounds of potatoes inna 5 pound bag.

I have pondered many times what happened to Barry Gray the author of the rules back in the 80's I think?
