Black Powder Era.

Post by JarlGreedo » Thu May 28, 2020 9:27 am

I fell in love with the games Sengoku Jidai, Pike&Shotte and the Field of Glory series (I even have the table top rules). The thing is, I am looking for a game like those based in the black powder era, Napoleonics, American Civil War, AmerIcan war of Independence, etc. Is there a game out there I'm looking over or missing that can scratch that itch? I Know there is Total War: Empire and Total War: Napoleon but those just won't do. I want that table top feel like Pike&Shotte, Sengoku Jidai, and Field of Glory(s) give me. Can someone lead me to the promised land? Or point me in the right direction?

Thank you in advance to all you gamers and wargammers, Monitor to Table, I salute you all.

Hello
Unfortunately I won't "lead you to the promised land" as I am not an expert of this period.

There are quite a few mods and scenarii for Field of Glory 2 and Pike & Shot, two games you mentioned, that cover the 18/19th centuries and might interest you if you don't know them yet, such as :

Cheers!
