I use Warmaster Ancients for my 6mm games, mostly because I didn't have to pay a cent for it.

Hi in our club W.A.R. We have been using Blucher and we have a good following. One of our members has also been running competitions, there is one this month at one of the BHGS events, I think there are places left if anyone is interested. We are also running a competition at our show, Warfare in November. We have found with Blucher that it can be learned in 20 minutes. We mainly use 6mm on 60 x 30mm bases so ideal for use with polemos bases. I suggest you give them a try.

For Ancients and Medieval: Sword and Spear.

For Renaissance / ECW: Polemos ECW, though I did a basic conversion for S&S too.

For Colonial: Patrols in the Sudan, though looking for something else.

For 18th C: Maurice.

For Napoleonics: Bluecher.

For ACW: Longstreet (though I use 10mm for this. If I did it again in 6mm though, I'd still use the same rules).

For WW2: Secret Upcoming Rules.

For Modern: Still looking, currently using my own homebrew rules.

For Colonial have you looked at Science v. Pluck - Sudan rules originally designed for use with 6mm. Unusually they are designed for a number of British players v. an umpire controlling the game and the Sudanese. Allows for some roleplay as well.

Beyond the Polemos Napoleonic and Great Northern War rules I found these two rule sets interesting:

For Napoleonics: March Attack

For general 18th century/SYW/GNW: Maurice

Puritan - I have looked at SvP for Colonial, but to be honest they aren't my cup of (decaf) tea at all.

Fair enough. I am plann ing to use Lasalle with my Peninsula Napoleonics. I like the army builder concept and the structure of the turn.

I use Lasalle for my 15mm, Bluecher for my 6mm :)

 

And occasionally for Grand Armee, though haven't played that for ages.

Not a massive fan of Blucher - in fact I sold it. I'd rather use something like BBB for big affairs like Leipzig and Waterloo (both available on the BBB Yahoo group page) but I'm more interested in playing smaller actions in the Peninsula at the moment.
