The Avon Napoleonic Fellowship (ANF), a small wargames group located in the Avon Valley, about 100 km ENE of Perth Western Australia. The focus of our group, as our name implies, is historical figure-based games in the Napoleonic period, but we do play wargames in other historical periods.
As with most wargamers that I know, and Napoleonic wargamers in particular, we are in a seemingly endless quest for the 'ultimate' set of rules for the period. Whether this is a factor of the size of the market, the inability of wargamers to agree or just that human trait of continuing to strive and to seek, I don't know. What it means for us, with our open and fun approach to the hobby, is that we'll have a ready source of challlenges, enjoyment and pleasure as we try different sets of rules!
With over 100 years of wargaming experience between us, we consider that we have a reasonable background to carry out a critical evaluation of different rules. This section of our blog will be a record of the rules that we have tested and our evaluation of each of them.
