@Lovejoy: I still have every intention of doing F&I was with you with Musket and Tomahawk at some stage, so no need to worry. It probably is better at the skirmish scale anyway.
Definitely one I'll hang on to. Period fascinating, and rules very nice, particularly in terms of the card system to randomize objectives, motivations etc. Very much a scenario driven game that I'm keen to do when I can.

Be interesting to see what you fellers decide to have a go at.
If anyone is interested in ECW or 30 years war, I would let my stuff go for reasonable amount less than I originally paid. At the moment it's just sitting there in the cupboard.

@Lovejoy: Just in case, please don't get the idea we want to exclude you. If you want to be involved dive right in and join the vetoing. It makes me feel like a permanent member of the UN security council :twisted:
That goes for anyone else who hasn't piped up yet and wants to be involved.

100 Years War
War of the Roses
Sengoku Jidai
Seven Years War
French-Indian War
Napoleonics
WW2
Moderns

Go for it!
@All - Please don't take offence if your favourite period gets the axe, I think we are going to see a few of our favourites going in this next round.

For myself, Modern Warfare just doesn't do a lot for me I'm afraid. Snip!

Punic Wars
Dark Ages
Crusades
Teutonic Crusades
100 Years War
War of the Roses
Sengoku Jidai
Seven Years War
French-Indian War
Napoleonics
WW2

OK, I'll take a gutsy move and chop WW2, since that's a period that already gets a lot of love and it'd be fun to do a period we don't usually play in.
Feel free to call me Dave!

Crusades. I'd rather do the century or two afterwards or the ones previous.

I'll vote out the 7 years war just since it's the one I know least about on the list.

It was the poor man's 30 Years War, and even that was a pale imitation of the 100 Years War.
...I guess. :lol:
