Lilibulero Rules For Wargames 1660 – 1700

Lilibulero (.zip file direct download) is a set of free wargames rules for wargames in the 1600 to 1700. The author writes:

These rules are shamelessly adapted from the old Wargames Holiday Centre “Marlburian Rules” written by Mike Ingham, with chunks lifted from Barry Hilton’s “Under the Lilly Banners”, produced by the League of Augsburg. Barry’s set was in turn based on Mike Ingham’s original. Another variant of Mike Ingham’s rules is “A Grim Panoply”, written by Phil Olley, and I have to admit I’ve also raided Phil’s rules for ideas. The orders section was adapted from Pete Berry’s English Civil War set “Forlorn Hope”. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then these three guys should be delighted!

WRG 1750 – 1850

Dating to 1972, the Wargames Research Group’s 1750 – 1850 are primarily intended for the Napoleonic Wars. By modern standards they’re a bit dated, but my recollection is that they are fun.
