Cold Steel

071027nap23aCold Steel is a set of  rules for Napoleonic warfare which has been developed by members of NWA. It is a battalion level game. This rule set has been refined over a number of years and a number of versions.

Cold Steel is usually played in 25mm scale at NWA. This is due to the large collections of Napoleonic figures in this scale that many of the members have. It is certainly possible to use other scales of figures with these rules.
