For King or Empress: Fast Play Rules for Miniatures Battles Covering the Seven Years War
by David H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/12/2018 10:01:01

I really enjoyed these rules and at bang per buck they are great value. Very similar to the Osprey rules but with just that bit more depth that makes them enjoyable. The whole unit basing might not suit some but I find this OK, wheras in the Osprey set it just doesn't click.ù Excellent too are the reference sheets on Army sizes, small and large, and for differing periods of the war in some cases. Great depth and character here, I love it!

Queen and Planet Core Rules + Boxer Rebellion Supplemen [BUNDLE]
by Charles E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/05/2016 03:27:13

Not played yet but my impression is that games with 1 or 2 "commands" per side would be the most played because of the many movement, fire, close combat, and morale modifiers that will probably slow the game. The VSF options are a nice, easy adaption for Sci-fi for those interested.

There are some interesting rule mechanics but I think a QRS would be quite large due to the many action modifiers.

I especially like the scenarios for Rise of the Mahdi and the Boxer rebellion.

For Queen and Planet - The Imperial Wars of Earth and Mars - 1845 - 1930

Reasonable set of rules, but marred by lack of a QRS. Not really sure why it is a VSF set when it appears to be mostly concerned with the historical activity in the Sudan. Definitely needs a QRS and a statement of raison d'etre.

Hi Andrew, It is amazing that the team at First Command Wargames was discussing exactly what you were saying just the other day. \"We need a Quick Reference Sheet for Queen and Planet!\" we all agreed. So your wish is our command! It is, at this very moment, under development and will be made available free of charge on Wargame Vault and on our website at First Command Wargames. As for a raison d\'etre, the Core Rules are only the beginning of many products that we will be releasing over the next year or so. The rules were written for the Colonial period, but we learned during play testing that they work very well for the VSF genre, also. The Core Rules certainly allows you to add VSF elements to the Sudan Campaign if you so choose. In addition, the Mars Punitive Expedition of 1901 to Barsoom is released and you will begin to see more of the Victorian Science Fiction elements in that supplement. Look for the Boxer Rebellion Supplement to be released later this month, also! Hope you try out the rules in a game or three and give us your feedback. They really are excellent for simulating Colonial and VSF action and the team of play testers at FCW always has a blast playing the scenarios! Thanks for trying the Core Rules, First Command Wargames

Very well written and very useful for steampunkish sci-fi or historic gaming. Ivery much look forward to sequels.
