I was a skirmish wargamer for such a long time, but about 5 years ago came around to horse and musket, with that being primarily SYW or Imaginations. Lots of eye candy in The Wargame and other books of my youth that I was hoping to emulate.

I do enjoy the variety that SYW has to offer. It’s a global conflict and the upside is so many nations can be selected to model armies around. I’m slowly enjoying the history when I set aside reading time. While my current painted collection of the past 5 years has Prussians, Austrians, and Saxons I’m looking to add in the next 5 years East Indians, British, French, and Hanoverians. Also on the backburner is F&IW figures, but I prefer large battles these days with lots of units and linear warfare. Rules I play currently are OGABAS and Black Powder with LAoK supplement.

Next on my radar is AWI.
