Are they still available for sale anywhere? Always like to check out different rulesets.

That's a good question I don't have an answer to. I cannot remember where I got the rules originally, it was many, many years ago. And I've got a vague feeling I didn't pay for the colonial supplement, as Björn was kind enough to send me a free copy (could be wrong there too, as that was at least ten years ago). There is a T&T board here on LAF. If you ask there somebody who knows might notice it and put you in the picture, hopefully.

Björn only has the colonial supplement book available currently but a reprint of the main book is forthcoming (I don't know when....I last pestered him about it just before Christmas). I am not sure if any of the resellers have copies left.

The original book does crop up 2nd hand from time to time but always sells quickly. It's worth posting a "wanted" ad here and as Plynkes said, drop a note on the T&T board (sub board of Pulp these days).

Im going to throw in my suggestions for:

Fishful er, Fistful of Lead, FFoL Bigger Battles and FFoL Horse and Musket.

I personally really enjoy these rule sets, they're very easy to pick up, very easy to tweak and modify and can be easly tailored to any setting. I use them for BoB shenanigans as well as War of the Roses nonsense. They're toolbox rules, so you have to design and stat out your units as you need them, but I find them very well balanced, interesting as a d10 system and I just love the playing card based random initiative system. And for a few dollars you can get each rule book in PDF form from the Wiley Games websitem.
