I'm proud to share with you all our latest iteration of the Nunawding Wargames Association's Napoleonic wargaming rules, Cold Steel! Click the link below or under the header for the detailed rules and the charts for the play mechanics.
The rules are a labour of love for the club with these being the 8th version of the rules so far. This time, a small group of us (Tim, John R., Robin, Quinny and myself) got together to review the rules which I had been asked to transform into clearer English, on the strength of my writing skills as evidenced by this blog!
Once I'd completed the rewrite, which took a while due to something called real life getting in the way, it was off to Robin to let him work his magic on the formatting and presentation of the document. Every club should have a professional printer in their membership, I say! I think you'll all agree that he's done a bang-up job with the lay-out and the little explanatory diagrams!
The link below is to read-only pdf files in my Google Drive library, so if you feel like printing them off and giving our rules a go, feel more than free! I don't claim that these are the be-all-and-end-all of Napoleonic rules, but for us they are a happy medium between detail and playability. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if you're interested, give them a go and we'd be thrilled to get some feed-back, positive or negative (but preferably positive!).
