Hi all,

In my wanderings on the internet I`ve been looking for some Command and Color-like rules for the English Civil War. Well this site has a set - Anubis Studios.

The link below is for their rules called "White Mountain", aimed at the Thirty Years War but also suitable for the ECW, and there are links for all the counters you`ll need (which can be pasted onto wooden blocks) and a quick ref. sheet.

I`ve just finished a 1st issue of Artscow cards and will playtest these when I get the time. Anubis have 61 cards in the deck (link for a card list on the page) but I`ve cut 7 cards so that a single Artscow deck will do. No reason why you shouldn`t use a seperate Artscow deck for more cards though.

Happy New Year gamers!

Also, there is Field of Glory - Renaissance which covers this era.

I have recently purchased the Field of Glory PC game, which is much like C&C Ancients but without cards. It does have the advantage of being playable on a netbook, so I can fight a battle on the way to work on the train. The AI is not fabulous, but neither am I.
