Mainly DBA and its other period offshoots...DBA-RRR, DBN, DBA-ACW, etc.  Also DBM with 100-150 points.

Getting into good old Phil Barker's WRG 1950-75/83 for "modern", I had these rules when I wa sin college in the early 1980s!  I have yet to find a good set of WW1 rules that I can bear reading through.....War Times Journal's may be the best and least convoluted. (Free online)  John

I will be trying To the Strongest for ancients, and I have been using Black Powder for Napoleonics at 1/3 scale, 4 x 20mm bases per unit.

Depends on the period and game scale. For AWI I use Black Powder, but for WSS I use Horse, Foot and guns. Ancients; DBA, and DBR or Pistolero for Renaissance  (incidentally, can we have a good C16th range sometime?). For WW2 and Modern; I haven't done these as miniature games for ages, but I had forces for WRG rules, or Blitzkreig Commander, and AK47 Republic for African Wars.

GWSH2 - not actually Polemos. Also use Square Bashing for a quick evening game.

If I ever get round to colonial Sudan  I may well use For Queen and Planet, Principles of War C19th, Science versus Pluck, Patrols in the Sudan, or FOB2. Sussing them out at the moment.

Ancients: Hail Caesar, Basic Impetus, Sword and Spear, Warmaster Ancients (no clear favourite has yet arisen)

Napoleonics: General de Brigade (acquired and planned for a russo-swedish war project but I need to paint some figures first)

ACW: Fire and Fury, Black Powder, Volley and bayonet. (Now looking for rules to reignite the love)

WW2 (20-28mm): Chain of Command (I have a big crush on this right now), Battlegroup Kursk.
