Battle Cry variants

I was idly surfing the Internet this evening when I came across a number of BATTLE CRY variants that were featured on the BOARDGAMEGEEK website.

I was quite amazed to see how many there were ... and the range of wars that they covered. The list included:
These variants are the work of two people – Michael Dippel and Pete Belli – and I must admit that they seem to have taken the development of BATTLE CRY into a generic set of wargames rules for fighting battles during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to new levels.

It is interesting to note that Pete Belli uses lots of readily available plastic wargames figures for his games as well as 'borrowing' playing pieces from other published boardgames.
