any clues on the scale and basic system for these rules?  I'm liking the thought of PoG for this period, but dedicated rules would be even better :p

We´re aiming at 28mm, but I don´t see why you couldn´t use it for 15 or 20mm. Of course, 28s are the nicest minis around... X-D I cannot say more without approval by Drizzie first...

Hello Mr. Smith,

as Chris said, we designed the rules for 28 mm but you can easily adopt the rules in any other scale, although I recommend 28 mm.

Concerning the basic systhem I can say that we use d10 and d6. We have unit sizes from 5 to 10 for regular or up to 16 for "irregulars"

We have a troop quality that varies from Raw to Elite.

Our initiative systhem is pretty new I guess and doesnt work the static I go you go way. It is easy, fast and exciting.

We have Leaders and Heroes and we have a skill systhem, rules for Vehicles and heavy weaponry.

Hope that helped a little.
Cheers
Björn

Bjorn,

Any more info on these rules you are developing?  Like many on this form I too am interested.  One can never have too many sets of rules.

Thanks
Chris

Hi Spooner,

yes, we are nearly finnished. We finally found a cover.

We have some little work left on scenario design and a little fine tuning with close combat and morale rules

At the moment Iam very busy with work but I hope I can open a thread in two weeks to introduce the rules.

Thanks for your interest .

Cheers
Björn

I have played a few games with Price of Glory now and I LOVE it too. Very quick, very simple, very realistic. It is a different scale than THW games, and you can easily play 50+ minis a side.

In case anyone is interested I have a few quick lists for RCW in the Far East here.

Yep, its me again! Has anyone considered 'Triumph of the Will' by Too Fat Lardies? This is not so much a skirmish set as for larger actions but will cater for smaller clashes...
