The rules & the game

Tony bath's rules gave an enjoyable if bloody game in terms of casualties.
Troops advance to assault the fortified village and engage in an exchange of musketry.
Defenders retreat and attackers too ,off the far right edge of the picture.
End of game with the defenders holding on on the left side of the picture with the attackers retreating whilst on the right hand side the attack is pressed home.
All in all I would recommend people to try these rules for themselves as they give an enjoyable game. I even enjoyed using the bounce stick ( ok so its old school, probably unhistorical  but great fun) and saving throws too. I will try the rules again with a bigger encounter type game with cavalry.So break out the 18th century figures and give it a whirl... 


  1. nice report
    Fun is the name of the game.

  2. Just been reading Featherstone's book with these rules in - lots of ideas in there , Tony

  3. Sounds like a good game. I certainly enjoyed rereading Don's colonial rules, very tempting.

  4. Looks like fun! Must give these rules a try.
    Best wishes, Brian
