A Survey of American Civil War Miniatures Rules

I wanted to share the following chart with you.  It is a list of miniature wargame rules for simulating battles during the American Civil War.  Over the coming weeks I will review several of these rules, particularly the ones dealing with battles at the regimental level.  With a few exceptions, I only cover rules that are currently available.  The rules listed under the generic category are designed to cover 'black powder' warfare in general and are not specific to the US Civil War.  Also, if there is an asterisk next to the binding type, then the rules are available in soft-copy.

  2. Dear Mark:
    This is a wonderful list that you put together, but I would like to correct your entry for the Brother Against Brother rules. They are still in print and retail for $20.00 at such retailers as scalecreep.com, onmilitarymatters.com, as well as through me at mjd_pub@comcast.net. Thank you!

    1. Ivor,

      This is great news. I will update the list with this new info. BAB is a great set of rules, and I was not happy when it looked like they were OOP.

      Thanks, Mark
