Thanks for the add. I have recently retired and am getting stuck in to a new project - European wars of 1848 to 1878. I have never used 10mm before but am finding it perfect for this period.

Welcome on board and you've chosen a great period to game. Looking forward to see what rules you plan to use, what armies you choose etc.

Welcome indeed! 10mm is a great choice for this period, as the Pendraken ranges are second go none.

Welcome, Morty, to the warm, wonderful, if occasionally weird world of the Pendraken forum.

Lots of supportive and knowledgeable people here so feel free to ask questions.

Thread derailment is a common phenomenon here, if it happens before you receive a sensible answer cough politely and draw attention back to the OP Smiley

Cheers!

A good collection there. As is so often the case, it depends what exactly you are looking for from a set of rules, and what size actions you wish to play. Two other sets which might be worth considering, if you like simple and elegant mechanisms, for big battles, are the old, but still good, ‘Volley and Bayonet’ by the great Frank Chadwick, and ‘To the Last Gaiter Button’ by one of our esteemed forum members, Bernie Ganley.

Bloody Big Battles gets my vote. Elegant rules that allow you to fight big battles in 2-3 hours. Plenty of online support as well with loads of free scenarios.

Welcome to the Fold. Retired - I am jealous, but good luck to you

Mind you some would say I am semi retired now due to the time off I get by working shifts Smiley
