Braid and Cockade is a set of free wargames rules for game set in the 1750 - 1850 era.
Here are a few photos from our group's recent game of Cossacks versus French in 1812 Russia. The French were attempting to hold onto a town while foraging for supplies; the Cossacks wanted to drive off the French while looting the countryside. As the game progressed, increasing numbers of Cossacks came in from the countryside to join the fun, while French reinforcements were also funneling in.
The figures and terrain were all by Bob Marshall, whose wargaming talents are eclipsed only by his talents as a cowboy troubadour.
En Avant En Masse is Jim Wallman's diceless, divisional level Napoleonic Wargame. Jim writes:
Based on the En Avant! diceless battalion level game, this takes the concept to the next level. This system is designed to play out a corps battle using 6mm figures in about an hour or so. The intention is that there is a player per division, with a corps commander in overall control, per side. It is not intended that the players see or use the game rules � this is to be done by one or more umpires.
