Back to the 60s (?)

Having just finished the Poles off I thought it would be a good time to get all the troops out on the table and have another play-test of my house rules “Muskets & Marshals”.

My opponent this time will be my brother and it will be the first game we’ve played together using the Hinton Hunts. Those of you who have read back to the beginning of this blog may remember that the Hinton Hunt army my brother and I started to put together in the late 1960s never actually got to see any action.

In recognition of this 42-year delay the battle reports will be posted over at brother against brother and I’ve started by putting up some photos of the initial dispositions. If you follow the link to take a look remember also to follow the blog so that you don’t miss out on any of the action!

Ian - I've been looking at my copy of your Napoleonic rules - I have Version 1.2 - is that the current version?

Cheers - Tony

Hi Tony, no the current version is 3.0! It has a completely different melee system which is the main reason I need another play test.

Marvellous 60s style photograph. It could be a print from an issue of John Tunstill's magazine.
