Matt Fritz offers a set of free miniatures rules called Across the Alps.

Valiant Britons

Valiant Britons is Jim Wallman’s contribution to wargaming ancient british tribes in the pre Roman era. Its designed for 15mm figures, but he says that any scale will do. Like all of Wallman’s rules sets, it’s well done and makes me want to start painting the period immediately.

I played Flint and Feather at a local con last fall and thought it was quite interesting. It’s a skirmish game about the “Heroic Age” of the Great Lakes First Nations. You can get the basic rules here.
