so what has changed since the first edition?

I thought the orginal Fire and Fury from back in the day is brigade size. Hence the scenario books for east and west. What is the difference from first edition? Is this turning into FOW?

Bite your tongue! FOW in deed.
Since there are some other systems that are based on F&F like Age of Eagles, there is likely been some feedback that Rich considered valuable.
Also some time back there was a playtest change floated around about the unit morale class being de-coupled from the units current physical state so it would be possible to have an Elite unit that was in a less than idea physical state at the start of a game. Likely some changes on that line.

There's also F&F Regimental level.

Fire charts and morale levels in the new brigade rules are structured similarly to the Regimental game, with changes to reflect the brigade level game. The game also has changes and tweaks learned from 20+ years of play. Weapon types are considered in much greater detail than in the orignal rules. I like them very much and have run at least a dozen games using the various versions of the new brigade rules. The book itself is a huge upgrade from the first with many more illustrations of the game concepts.

ACWBill, sounds like the tweaks are a real improvement.
I was impressed with the Regimental rules, which we've played, so improvements to the game like that are welcome.

Original F&F is my favorite rules set. I've been fortunate enough to play in a couple of the play tests run by Bill, and I absolutely like the changes. In my mind, it's a great rules set that has been made even better. I can't wait to buy a copy.

Original F&F is my all time favourite ACW rule set. Will the basing remain the same as for the original?
| ACWBill ||17 May 2017 11:42 a.m. PST|
Short answer, yes.
There are a couple of new markers, but NO re-basing. I have used my old F & F Classic bases during the entire play test period.

Is anyone selling the original fof rules? I've got the regimental version, but would love to play the original.
|shirleylyn ||17 May 2017 8:02 p.m. PST|
I have a nice copy. PM me if you'd like the book.
