Had a first game with my latest obsession recently at Steves, Elizabethan Ireland, using Irregular Wars rules, quite impressed with them in the end, write up and pictures here:

Great writeup Roger, much appreciated. I am a big fan of Irregular Wars, I feel like they give a fun game for large skirmish/small battles for the 16th/17th century.

I have Meso-Americans, English Adventurers, Colonial Spanish, and Eastern Woodland Natives painted up. Unpainted, I have Dutch, Portuguese, Malays, Russians, Poles, Lansknecht, Irish and English…the rules always give a good game and force a commander to think on the fly as unique challenges pop up.

That was a good write up of what appear to be an interesting set of rules which don't really need a big outlay in figures.

Look like fun rules – also great minis – thanks for sharing!

Thanks all, I think these are going to work really well. Couple more games will settle it and decide me on how I will finalise basing. Another game this month planned so will share with you.

Planning English, Irish and Highland/Islemen armies so far. Who know where it leads once I am down the rabbit hole.
