Universal Rules 1859 - 1871
15th Feb 2016 07:50:38

Hi ! 

I am commiting to my new long term Project, being the Italian War of Reunification + the 3 German Wars of Reunification(1864,1866,70/71). I was wondering if i could extend the FPW Rules to fit all 4 Conflicts.

For the French in 1859 i can use the Imperial French from the FPW. The Sardinians im not sure about..

The Danish in 1864 are similar to the Austrians i believe, having Muzzle loaded Rifles (btw which models could i use?)

Austria (+german minors) in 1866 have inferior fire power but more troops in General

Any tried those wars with the FPW Rules ? Any Thoughts ? 


Thank you !

There used to be variants of the FPW rules for 1859 and 1866 available on the website as free downloads, with a couple of scenarios included, but I don't seem to be able to find them any longer.  I think they were called something like "Bruderkrieg" and "Risorgimento" . Perhaps Peter can help?

Mollinary beat me to it!   There are two supplements to the FPW rules covering the Risorgimento and the Austro-Prussian war.   They will be made avaialable for download on the site later this year, but for the moment if you email me I will arrange to get them to you.

Thanks Peter !

I can wait until its available on the Site, since im starting with the FPW anyway. Im pretty sure it will take at least a  few months to get to the next war :)


Edit: But good to know such a thing exists !
