Very Tasty- and yess I'll have them for Claymore I hope- already ordered up some stock

These excite me. Now I have to build windmills and ale houses. :)

What a splendid set! Very tempting indeed.

Don''t do these, I don''t do these.
Any one know any good rules I don't want to buy
|Mako11 ||06 Jul 2012 8:44 a.m. PST|
Well, given your requirements, there are a set of free rules, from Eureka, I think, titled "And One for All", or something like that, plus extra rules, and scenarios too.
Check out the message archives, and do a search on Musketeers, and they should pop up, with a link to them.

Gloire from Rattrap games is hard to beat for this sort of thing.

Flashing Steel from Ganesha games

OK I am bias as I did the illustrations for the book but yes Gloire was written for just this kind of thing. Wonderful figures as always.
|Dave Crowell||06 Jul 2012 10:57 a.m. PST|
Do not even look at Gloire. Trust me. It does very small groups of figures on small boards, with interesting scenarios very well.mAnd it was written for this era.
You might want to avoid Flashing Steel as well. I don't have it, but I really like other Ganesha Games rules.
Just to help out why not don't buy a set and send them to me. I will be glad to help you keep from increasing the size of your lead pile in this way.

Does Blue Moon break up packs? (I know, I can ask them, and will.) I have no desire for mounted figures but would perhaps buy a pile of dismounted because they are cool.

Im with headzombie on that. I want a bunch of Cardinals Guards to be fodder for the musketeers but I dont want all those cavalry.
|argsilverson ||07 Jul 2012 4:42 a.m. PST|
I would like to see civilians and personalities in 28mm, too!
|OldGlory Andy ||09 Jul 2012 7:29 a.m. PST|
Bluemoon do most of these in 28mm too – only really the Civvies missing but sort of not quiteas some are in other boxes.
As for "Cavalry" remebr that both in reality and in the movies the Musketerrs and the Cardinals Guard wereCAVALRY units in war- and if you are on foot how do you chase down Milady coach ?
|headzombie ||09 Jul 2012 9:18 a.m. PST|
I'm not worried about reality or the movies. ;-)
The fights were mostly on foot and that's all I'd recreate.
|greghallam ||13 Jul 2012 6:13 a.m. PST|
I'd also recommend the The Eureka rules "And One For All" – not just because i wrote them :), but because they sound like what you're after.
They are simple, fast, and designed to recreate Hollywood cinematic swashbuckling. And they are free!
You can find the rules, supplement , mini-campaign and example of play here
If you are wanting more detail in your games and characters, then Flashing Steel is a good choice (but not free :) )
