Hey, I need some recommendations, I've been a wargamer for a long while but I mostly played WW2 and onwards games. Now I have a partner who is more interested in pre-WW2 battles. What are the most stand-out pre-WW2 wargames? Civil War would be okay too. I tried looking for a geeklist on this subject but had no luck.

Thanks!

DBA might be a good introduction to miniatures.

Command and colours series is an OK intro level board war game.

DBA? What's that?

And intro level isn't too much of a worry, my partner is experienced with games.

Hex and counter, block, or miniatures?

-edit- also, there is a better place to ask about wargames

Hex and counter/block are what I'm most interested in. I prefer more tactical scale games but I'm generally not too picky. I'm a big fan of anything that takes place in asia!

Julius Caesar might be a good one too.
