The Jackson Gamers have this set of free wargamesrules for the English Civil War. They use a card activation system, (not surprising, considering the acknowledged Brom influence), and d6s to resolve actions. These rules are 20 years old and in their 6th edition, so they are well-tested.

Simple Samurai Skirmish Rules

The older I get, the more I like simple rules sets. Here’s one for Samurai Skirmishes.

From the introduction:

Sensō is a skirmish game, 1:1 figure scale, for 25mm miniatures. One scale inch represents six feet and one turn roughly approximates one-two minutes. Bases should be square for foot, approximately one inch. Mounted can be 1” x 2”. The game is WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get); figures are armed and armoured as they appear.
