Hello everyone,
Please, I am looking for a rule specifically for ECW but dating from before 1976, you don't know and you know where to find it? .Thanks.

Do you mean a rule set specifically for the ECW?

And by 1976 do you mean 'With pike and musket' by Charlie Wesencraft?

Eumelus Supporting Member of TMP09 Jun 2022 5:23 a.m. PST

Or perhaps "Cavaliers and Roundheads" by Gygax and Perrin?

BillyNM09 Jun 2022 6:21 a.m. PST

Or – 'File Leader' (company & troop level rules for the English Civil War) by Peter Berry? A thin A5 set with a green card cover.

Or – 'Wargames Rules of the English Civil War' by Mike Wall. Another thin card-backed set (in pale blue) 5" tall by 8" wide.

If you could give us more clues…

Unfortunately I can't help, but I'm intrigued. Why are you looking for these rules?

DisasterWargamer Supporting Member of TMP09 Jun 2022 9:31 a.m. PST

I still use Cavaliers and Roundheads to do ECW and TYW

If you like To the Strongest try the ECW variant For King and Parliament from Big Red Bat Shop. You can get an electronic version almost instantly.

It's simple, in fact For 25mm figures only , I am looking for old rules from those years to collect them and I am lso looking for old rules from those years for other periods as well.

There is none in [PDF] to test.

Discovering English Civil Wargaming by John Tunstill. Not sure I'd call the mechanisms fun. There is quite a bit of maths involved, as there often is in rules from the 70s

Currently unavailable..? There is none in [PDF] to test.

Discovering English Civil Wargaming regularly appears on eBay listings and is cheap (a few pounds)
File Leader is still available (new) from Caliver Books
Cavaliers and Roundheads does crop up on eBay from time to time but is usually listed for very silly money (hundreds of pounds, there's currently a copy on for just under $300 USD USD). Once in a while a copy appears for sensible money and will sell for about £25.00 GBP GBP There is an 'almost but not quite' version of Cavaliers and Roundheads available as a pdf. If I can find it (again) I'll post a link

Thank you all, it's not for collecting, but I find that the game systems before 1976 are more interesting because they are more outdated, etc… If you know of any others, please indicate it.
