THE WARGAMING PART OF THE SITE is designed to offer inspiration to the Jacklex (old school-new look) wargamer, collector and diorama builder. The content will increase as the site matures. For now I have placed the following on the page.
WARGAME RULES: free PDF copies of old school ACW, Colonial and Early 20th Century rules by Andy Callan are available by clicking on the text below. The Colonial rules have been updated with very useful additions from Roy Boss based on his experience of fighting Boer War battles. The Early 20th Century rules are perfect for fighting the Russo-Japanese War 1904-05 and are NEW. They were play tested again at the Battleground show at Stockton on 30 November 2019 and seemed to work quite well. They were quick and simple and fun!
I have been fortunate to know Andy for many years and, like many others have been heavily influenced by his excellent rule method and style. I am grateful to Andy for allowing me to post the rules here.
