Thanks,a question and the KFC

Thank you all for your kind and thoughtful comments to my last post as well as your thoughts and prayers.They were appreciated by us all . The day passed well all things considered and here we are now in September.
I  want to ask the collective blogdom a question- can you suggest old school rules for the French/Indian wars? I  have "Musket and Tomahawks" but would prefer something more "old school" in order to fight some  battles with around 60/70 figures aside.
I hope to do some gaming set in that corner of Pennsylvania known in the 18th century as the KFC- Karl Frederick County. A small corner of the colonies where people from the Duchy of Tradgardland have gone as colonists to start a new life.

This Tuesday coming (30th August) will be exactly a year since my wife Jan died. It has been quite a year but myself and the girls have got through it. Milestones have been passed and still to come (Anna's 21st next month) including the girls going off once more to university very soon. I miss my best friend dearly.
Hopefully more posts soon and some updates on my erratic hobby progress,at times recently my heart has just been in it .

Suggestions sought for collective nouns for orcs...

I have been basing orcs of late-
I was wondering what would be a collective noun for orcs?
What do you think?Here's a rather lame starter- a snarl of orcs!

Not traditional Tradgardland headgear by the way.
