After Napoleonic and Renaissance rules come out then what?

Post by Huaxtec15mm » Mon May 04, 2009 1:50 am

Well I'll throw my 2 cents in already. I would like to see an "Age of Rifles" type game before anything else (especially before 18th century Lace Wars!!).

Age of Rifles would cover the years of 1850-1914.
Conflicts covered would include but not be limited to the following:
Crimean Wars,
Franco-Italian Wars,
Austro-Prussian Wars (Wars of German Unification),
Franco-Prussian War,
Russo-Turkish War,
Serbian-Bulgarian War,
British in Africa (Sudan, Egypt, Boer n Zulu Wars),
First and Second Balkan Wars,
1914 World War I (while the fronts were still fluid and not trench warfare).

Other than that, I would like to see an ancient/medieval naval variant of the rules. I would particularly like to game the naval battles between the Japanese and Koreans 1592-1598.

Let me hear what you think!

Hmm. American Civil War is not considered to fall within this?

Yes! It absolutely would! I just had a limited number of choices to list. Your vote is duly noted. :oops:

Nothing, I probably wouldn't even buy the rules. Not a period I'm really interested in.

Seven years war.. It would just be a modified version of FOGN wouldnt it? I do not know much about the seven years war i must admit. :oops: As for the time periods shown.. I am interested in them.. But not enough to collect figs.. Reason being.. You don't see a much if any games in those periods. If someone else had them(figs), i would play. Only so much time and money to be spent. So my 10 year plan is Naps then 30 years war.(Once my 25mm Roman army is done) :D

Oh! And PS I vote ACW! :D

Besides ACW. I like British in Africa if it could be expanded to all the Colonial Wars: Afgan and India come to mind.

Gads- another period to buy/paint :shock:

How about an ancient/ medieval/ renaissance naval game? Battle groups could be squadrens of Galleys, Triremes or Turtle Boats!

This has my vote! I've had Roman and Carthaginian ships that have been played only once,due to a lack of rules.

Due to my early painting period (pre-children, and when I had a boss who thought me being quiet in my room meant I must be productive) I have dozens of odd armies hardly or un-used. The nice thing about Ancients - and why I am supportive of the FOG projects - is that you get opponents all over the place using a consistent rules system. The risk is that you get the late 90s DBeverything where a system is seen as being the framework which the period has to fit, rather than the other way round. This is also where (imho) Principles of War went a bit wobbly when it tried doing a POW ancients. Warfare cannot be represented in exactly the same way in all periods with tweaking - that way lies madness, and excessive rules clarification. So I am pleased that the napoleonic rules have significant changes to FOG Ancients.

Anyway - the (sort of) point is - I do not think FOG will ultimately let you get FoG turtle-boat wars without you drawing up your own varient, for financial and practical reasons. I have never been convinced that naval warfare works using land warfare mechanics and I do not see that FOG will adapt to it.

Not a criticsm of FoG, or generic systems, just a thought that the ongoing devolution into new fields must have a limit and that more cautious expansion is sensible to maintain quality.

Rough Riders, The Pony Wars, Several in Central & South America, India, and what about Asia - would the Boxer Rebellion fall within this period?

Bruce Weigle's 1859 and 1866 at http://www.mediaevalmisc.com/gtr/1859.htm and http://www.mediaevalmisc.com/gtr/1866.htm are worth a look

I've had a decent 1859 game using Future War Commander http://www.flickr.com/photos/alanmillic ... 950074405/

I would vote ACW or AWI. ACW has some good & known rulesets but they seem to focus on 15mm. AWI I can't find a popular ruleset!

I would also like to throw in my vote for ACW. BTW, for those of us who are interested in the American War of Independence, are there any suggestions for using FOG rules?

Thank you in advance.
