Latest set of rules to come under the KeepYourPowderDry microscope are Warhammer Historicals ECW. An interesting, in many ways, set of rules link

Thank you. Your review almost encapsulated my experience with the WHECW rules.

Good to hear that I haven't got the wrong end of the stick

I have the rules and plan to use them for my 28mm ECW project – I also played Warhammer Empire in the past (old rules) – and this is pretty much an empire army vs an Empire army without the magic element. I do like the "no pre-measuring" aspect of the rules and the way artillery and mortars are done. I hate rules that allow players to measure from my units to ensure they are .000000001 inches out of range!!!

I've wondered about the figure to man scale for these rules. None specified iirc, but I think it was about 1 to 10 if you compare ranges etc with other rules and scale.

Perhaps a good candidate for gaming those in-between sized engagements, smaller than a battle but bigger than a skirmish, that are really very common in the ECW.

That said, I have the rules but haven't yet played them.

Hello KeepYourPowderDry, here is Lorenzo from Warlord Games.
Warlord's Overlord John Stallard was talking to me about your article just today.
First of all, congratulations about the review, both he and I found it quite well written, informative and entertaining… I have to say that you have indeed inspired me to have another look at my collection of WH Historical books I have!
If this could be useful to you, to add a bit more detail and to correct one small inaccuracy in your review, the cover art was not painted by one of the Perry twins, but by Chris Collingwood.
The picture was kindly offered to John to be used for free as the cover art of the book, by Staffordshire Pottery.
Michael and Alan Perry still helped with the book in making some internal panorama shots of the tables.

Thanks Lorenzo (and John). And thanks for the correction, I shall amend forthwith
