The Red Badge American Civil Wargames rules plus 6mm ACW paper armies
This as a combined package of The Red Badge rules and Grand Manoeuvre 6mm paper armies for the American Civil War for gamers who perhaps are returning to the hobby, or are new to the period.
The Red Badge American Civil Wargames rules are designed to enable gamers to recreate large-scale battles, acting as divisional, corps or army commanders. The rules have been kept as simple as possible and yet preserve the period-specific flavours and represent the nature of command of control in this late phase of the horse and musket period with some of the period’s latest weapons and technologies.
These ACW paper armies provide a comprehensive range of unit types of both sides. They are particularly suitable for younger children who may not be old enough yet to use metal figures. They are great value for money because all the paper armies are pdf downloads, so you can have as many units as you like.

In this package are: The Red Badge rules (£7.50) plus the GM ACW paper armies’ pack which includes both Union and Confederate armies needed (£12.50). These would be £20, but are reduced to £17.50.

Designed with the Napoleonic beginner in mind; “Paper Strength Units” will provide players with an opportunity to game on a large scale or with an “en masse” effect but at a very low cost – you may print and make as many units as you wish.
For example, the French Army pack consists of twenty-two pdf files of French “Line” army units and includes; light and line infantry, skirmishers, cavalry and artillery with horse and limbers and flags.
All you will need to make them is paper, small sharp scissors, PVA glue, a small brush and printer ink.
Once made and the glue is dried, the army unit blocks are surprisingly strong and can be very durable – I still have some in my garage that I made in April 2006!
The bottom line: £5 for an army pack of 20-25 files and smaller packs and armies will cost proportionately less!
