Over the years I have tried the lot! Shelves are bulging with Ancient rules I never play…. However, I do keep coming back to a couple of sets….. For a small quick simple game I like DBA. Can’t stand DBMM though. The rules I am playing more and more are Impetus. Quite excellent, and although they can use ‘standard’ wrg basing if you wish I am probably going to rebase my 28s for these rules. They do need consolidating though, there have been a lot of clarifications, updates and corrections to full Impetus which I would like to see actually incorporated into a new edition.
Another vote for Battlefront WW2 from Fire and Fury. If Carlsberg made wargame rules….. Having said that, I seem to play Rapid Fire! most of all- simple, quick, fun. And you will almost always be able to find an opponent for a game.
Interesting. And what is the white horizontal stripe that circles the turret for? Was it very common in 1942?

One of the popular basing options for Volley and bayonet is half size (1.5″) or more commonly two thirds size (2″) basing for a brigade. With half scale you can do gettysburg on a kitchen table, and in 2″ basing Borodino fits nicely on a 6×4. same basing works with the excellent grande Armee rules too. I use Adlers for this level of game on 2″ bases audit looks great.
Another vote for Lasalle. An easy game system to begin playing the period. My current club use Shako, which are quick and easy, and only need 18 figs per unit. They needed a bit of modification, and the order system inspired by that in Napoleon’s Battles made it a playable set of rules. If you want to use a bit more brainpower, then Gen de Brig is a very popular set in 28mm if you dont mind buying and painting 36 and 40 man units.
