Schwerpunkt Rules for Warfare in the Age of the Rifle

Schwerpunkt is a set of free wargames rules for conflicts from the late 19th through the 20th centuries.. The author writes:

Schwerpunkt is a set of rules I designed myself before I bought CLA.  Basically I asked myself what I wanted in a wargame and came up with the following criteria:
1) It had to be fast Playing
2) It should be capable of producing historical results
3) It had to be fun
With this in mind, I set about using all the rulesets I have ever played or read to come up with what I liked and didn’t like.

Charge of the Light Brigade Rules

Charge of the Light Brigade is a set of free wargames rules by David Raybin for mid-19th century warfare. Raybin writes:

The rules (which have evolved over the last twenty years or so) were originally designed for conventions where players expected to be able to learn a game in under fifteen minutes and to start throwing dice almost immediately. Obviously, then, playability and fun are central to the rules. There is no strict ground or time scale. It is merely representational at best which, in truth, is all one can say about any wargame.
