GdA for other eras?

Post by pauljamesog »

Greeting chaps, I am new to GdA and enjoyed my first game of it today (5 Brigades a side) - great fun and I loved the higher C2 aspects.

I am particularly interested in trying to utilise the rules for the Crimean War, which was fought in a very Napoleonic style with a greater propriety of rifles to mussels for the Allies. Has anyone tried this? Any recommendations?

What other wars have people used GdA for?

many thanks

The link above is to an excellent home-made version of the rules for the American Rebellion which can be tweaked for other 18th Century conflicts. Not ideal for the Crimea, though.

I wonder if Pickett's Charge, GdA's American cousin, might be a better option for the Crimea?

Hi Paul,
Mainly because Pickett's Charge is closer in the historic timeframe to the Crimean War and uses similar weapons such as the rifled musket. While I have the rules I haven't played PC yet so I might be well off.

One thing you would need to look at are the rules for cavalry since their use differed greatly. You might end up with something of an amalgam of GDA and PC.
