As used for Dead's Army, the Lake Tanganyika telephone raid, and (probably) Grahame's Commando raid. Essentially they're what they say - quick and easy rules for a bunch of blokes running around with guns.

Dead's Army variant, which contains various custom abilities for well-known characters, chit-based activation

Lake Tanganyika variant, some modification to allow for better equipped British vs natives, IGO-UGO, but easily modified

The core mechanics in both are the same, and I'll try and make some time this week to consolidate both sets into one more generic set for future games.

GoT Night's Watch

Schloss Itter did try a variant on the rules for a bit to handle larger groups, but it needs more tweaking and testing to make it work.
