Rules…

Mad Dogs & Englishmen: Colonial Wargaming in Times When the Sun Never Set

Mad Dogs & Englishmen: Colonial Wargaming in Times When the Sun Never Set Large-scale skirmish rules for the Indian Mutiny, that is easily adapted for other theaters and periods for skirmishes and battles between European and any native forces. The rules will even work if you want to pit a colonial German force against the French Foreign Legion, or for that matter, the British in South Africa against the Boers. Movement is randomized by using dice and you lose movement dice for bad terrain. It is easier to move and control units if there is a commander present. Firing and combat is based on the number of figures, plus or minus relevant factors. Damage either kills a figure or inflicts terror on the unit. Morale tests are triggered by extreme situations, or the gradual buildup of terror. $28.00 USD

What a Tanker: WWII Tank Combat Rules with Markers This version of the rules includes plastic markers. Game of WWII tank combat which focuses on the players taking command of one (or more) tanks and fighting their way through the battlefields of WWII using rolls of d6 dice. $59.00 USD
