The earlier WRG rules stand up well IMO. Not ancients or George Gush renaissance though, although we played the latter to death during the 80s.
I still have, and play, 1925-1950, 1950-1985 (the first editions, not the late 80s ‘improved’ version which as Guy said improved all playability out of them) and 1685-1845.
I’ve got a paperback copy of Operation Warboard, but it hasn’t been off the shelf for a while. Ditto Grant’s ‘Battle’, which cost a guinea in 1971 🙂
