March of Eagles Fast Play Napoleonic Rules

Victrix Miniatures has released a set of free wargaming rules called March of Eagles, which is designed to go with their plastic boxed miniatures. They write:

We commissioned Barry Hilton, League of Augsburg, to write a set of fast play Napoleonic rules. The rules are quick to learn, very realistic, extremely bloody and a game can easily be played within an evening. At present we are only publishing rules for infantry combat but we will be releasing supplements to cover artillery and cavalry.

These March of Eagles rules are included in each box of Victrix figures along with lots of cut out counters that are an aid to the rules. We have also included a very useful set of measuring devices within the sprue frame.

Rivers For Your Wargames

Iron Hands has a nice illustrated article on his efforts to create a river for a Mordheim tabletop. It’s really neat looking, with a detail density that’s only found in the best of the Games Workshop illustrations.

Building A Thunderhawk Gunship Model

Ironhands has a tutorial on building a Games Workshop type Thunderhawk gunship from styrene and bits of toys. It’s a nice and imaginative scratchbuilding project.
