    What it says:

    What rules are out there that are fairly generic for horse&musket and playable without a lot of troop stands (say, no more than 20 per side at the most).

    DBN. ~12 stands a side. Expandable for bigger battles.

    This set of rule by Jim Purky from “Fife and Drum Miniatures” is a good generic set, fun and fast.  You choose the size of your units for these rules and they are only a page and a bit long.

    ‘One Hour Wargames’ -Neil Thomas.  Same book covers other periods in the same style and has scenarios.

    'The time has come" The walrus said. "To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--Of cabbages--and kings--And why the sea is boiling hot--And whether pigs have wings."

    Appreciate the suggestions guys.
    I should have mentioned I already own 1HW but was looking for something just a tiny bit more involved than that.

    Another alternative would be Bob Cordery’s Portable Wargame rules, covering a variety of periods. He recently published two books on them, but other versions can be downloaded from his blog, “Wargame Miscellany”.
