H G Wells

Well these rules arrived from America yesterday where they have been just published. The design quality is high and the contents excellent. They take the HG Wells style of wargaming and expand it ( and in my humble opinion enhance it) for today's wargamers.There is talk of a centenary competition for 2013 too. The rules are written slightly tongue in cheek and are great fun. I devoured them yesterday on a grey,dreich Scottish afternoon. I am raising Army Red/White. Anyone for some nostalgia...
Get acopy you won't regret it !

    Looks interesting. Could you give a quick breakdown on unit sizes etc along with a couple of suggestions for manufacturers.
    Thanks
