One of the most frequently asked questions from people new to 10mm is 'What rules can I use with them?'  In response to this, we're launching the Great 10mm Rules Directory!  The idea is to pull together all of the various 10mm-suitable rulesets out there into a single pdf document, broken down into period, that people can have a browse through when deciding on a new project.  Each entry will contain a few bits of key information about the rules, where to get them from, scale of game they're aimed at, and finally what tweaks might be needed to use them with 10mm miniatures.

So this is where you can help out!  There are potentially 100's rulesets out there and you'll know better than us how well they work with 10mm.  Below are the 6 questions we're asking, along with an example entry to give you an idea of what we're looking for.  Join in and let us know your entries for the 10mm Rules Directory!

Name of rules:
Available from/Published by:
Period:
What scale of miniatures is the game designed for?
What tactical level is the game aimed at (eg, platoon, company, battalion, division)?
What amendments/adaptations are required to play these with 10mm miniatures?



EXAMPLE:
Name of rules: Blitzkrieg Commander IV
Available from/Published by: Pendraken Miniatures - https://pendraken.co.uk/rules/blitzkrieg-commander/
Period: WWII
What scale of miniatures is the game designed for? 6mm-10mm
What tactical level is the game aimed at? One base = One platoon
What amendments/adaptations are required to play these with 10mm miniatures?  Designed for 10mm so no changes needed.

Honours of War
Available from/Published by:
Osprey Publishing https://ospreypublishing.com/store/osprey-games/osprey-wargames/honours-of-war
Period:
Seven Years War
What scale of miniatures is the game designed for?
28mm to 6mm.
What tactical level is the game aimed at?
Infantry battalions, cavalry regiments and artillery batteries organised in brigades or as independent units.
What amendments/adaptations are required to play these with 10mm miniatures?
Little or none at all, depending on your existing collection. Quick Reference Sheets are provided for all scales. Basing is relatively flexible; ideally all standard size cavalry and infantry units should have roughly the same frontage and allow you to form line, march column and, in the case of cavalry, double line.
Simply match your preferred frontage for your standard infantry and cavalry units with the maximum "muskets only" range to determine which scale QRS to use. It is therefore possible to have figures in one scale and use the QRS for another scale.

Great Idea Leon, anything that unites the holy trinity of figures, rules and basing systems is manna for the smaller scales.

My opener will surprise few.

Name of rules:                            Irregular Wars (Conflict at the World's End).
Available from/Published by:        Amazon, Vexilla Lts, Wargames Vault
Period:                                      1500 - 1700 (Fringes of the European World - Britain and Ireland), New World, East Indies and the Eurasian Steppe.
What scale of miniatures is the game designed for?                                                  15mm
What tactical level is the game aimed at (eg, platoon, company, battalion, division)?    Each "Lord" will command between 5 and 16 companies representing 80 - 150 men (or a far smaller contingent of specialists).
What amendments/adaptations are required to play these with 10mm miniatures?       I will put about 50% extra figures on each stand compared to the 15mm recommendations.

Name of rules:   Black Powder
Available from/Published by:  Warlord Games
Period: 1700 - 1900
What scale of miniatures is the game designed for? 28mm
What tactical level is the game aimed at (eg, platoon, company, battalion, division)? Units are battalions of infantry and regiments of cavalry (Artillery is rather vague)
What amendments/adaptations are required to play these with 10mm miniatures? The rules are rather "Free and easy" about basing, through they feature large movement distances and do recommend unit frontages. Decide your own scale to the distances, then adopt a basing system that reflects this - Ignore their "2 / 4 figures per stand"and use what looks best.
