I am a solo wargamer who for many years has cannabalised rules (usually donald Featherstone and Paddy Griffith )for 6mm napoleonic games.  

However This time I only want to use the Polemos Napoleonic rules. I would like ask how do they play when used by the  solo wargamer?  Any thoughts ideas?

Hi Jonathan,

i'm using Polemos rules quite often in solo playing, and it works very well vor me - the only thing, that needs a little adjustment, is the tempo-bidding process. Usually i throw a dice for both sides, adding it to my bids. Its still a bit schizophrenic to bid for both sides, but it works.

Cheers, Ralf

Schizophrenia. that's double the problem is it not


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.
