For me it has always been the WSS/GNW and the AWI.
The WSS/GNW is the essence of warfare change. The old and the new together on the battlefield. Exotic uniforms and units with steady ranks of regular troops. The pike is still present in some quantity and horse is still armored.
AWI has a special place as the AWI figures from the back of a comic book were my first true wargame figures with Donald Featherstone’s excellent book War Games. It also has the advantage of colorful uniforms, large battles, small battles, amphibious operations and a range of characters that are all a bit larger then life to me.
