Rules like BKCII, Lion Rampant, Dux Bellorum etc tick all the boxes for me. They are:
- Affordable. BKCII was £20 and Lion Rampant etc I could buy off Amazon for around £8.00 inc P&P.
- Everything in one book. So that’s the rules, examples and army lists.
- No extraneous fluff. They are not padded out with painting guides, useless waffle etc.
Whilst I enjoy Black Powder as a ruleset, it could have been a third of the size and still worked. The forthcoming ‘Honours of War’ by Osprey is a case in point.
