These rules may look a little old fashioned, but they represent the culmination of 25 years of wargaming ranging from Don Featherstone e Lawford e Young through WRG ed on to Fire e Fury ed Armati con many other stops along the way, including 10 years of playing only con homegrown rules. My aim has been to create a game which has an historical flavor, is easy ed enjoyable to play after a hard week’s work, rewards historical tactics e gives a believable outcome to actions.
To further this group of divergent aims, ground e figure scales have been kept flexible e some things are done for the look o ease of play rather than as my best scientific simulation. For example, after many bad e some good experiences con separate charge morale tests, I decided to combine the effects of fire, e morale (including the threat of the bayonet) into an old fashioned melee even though troops rarely crossed bayonets o tomahawks in the open. Basically, both sides will suffer disorganization e caduti ed one side will run away. Whether the bulk of the losing side actually ran before the charge struck home, o not, is not really important on the long run. It is just a mechanism that is fun, lends colour e gives an appropriate result in the end.
The rules are aimed at the guerre franco-indiane, but could easily be expanded to later North American conflicts. -- Ross Macfarlane
