What you have is a quick and dirty selection to get play testing the rules with.
Yeah, I finally figured that out!

am enjoying tinkering with potential lists for the play-test thus far.

i must say, i'm liking dragoons. finally a ruleset where they're marginally useful

'What you have is a quick and dirty selection to get play testing the rules with.' Oh that I had the rules to playtest with! I have already built two pairs of army lists for historical battles, just need the rules to give them a run.

Bear in mind that a LOT of stuff was missing, not just eastern lists. These are by no means anywhere near the amount of lists they'll be doing, just a quick sample of some armies. The email did say that some more lists would be coming shortly too.
Indeed it does say "2" more army lists! I missed that on my first glance as I was in such a big hurry to print out the army lists. Heres hoping for Ming, Koreans, and Samurai in the next list! :wink:
The reference to "2 more lists" was made before the last two were written and included in the pack that you should all have. Sorry we omitted to change that part of the script! The sample lists were chosen with a view to giving the draft rules a thorough work-out while permitting some historical match-ups. We certainly want to address those eastern armies but not yet, I'm afraid. Hope this doesn't disappoint too much. :oops:

Fair enough I'm sure we'll be interested to see them, but could you please play test with the lists sent out (at least initially) so that the test results are have a common base.

The same thing happened to me. When the rules didn't arrive I dropped a note to JD and he responded with the rules attached.

Thanks.

Nik - I had a second try at e-mailing JD. Maybe I am not really a Beta tester and he does have the heart to tell me.

Were does one get a "Down and Dirty" Beta set of rules? I have Samurai and I can't be yelled at by the "Rules end at 1500 bad man". Iam pretty bright (?) read a lot about the samurai during the Country at War peroid. Plus the min/max unit size. is it still 4 to 8?

Since the Samurai army of this peroid is nothing but a medevil army with Teppo all I really need is musket POA chart and away I go.

Good, I will post more detail when the betatest part opens.
I'm halfway through the mini Naseby refight. Only a few minor questions so far. The day is not going well for Parliament at the moment. Then and now.

cheers
Jim
