Mr Steve got his new Tiny Wargames mat out together with his equally new collection of Newline Designs Sikh War figures to put on the second of the four games played at this months meeting of the DWG.



If you would like to know more about the game then just follow the link to the club blog

Fine looking battle.
Colorful period to game.
The Sikh army was well trained and could have won a number of battles.
Sadly they were let down by their leaders.
I fine it interesting that you used TSATF rules.
Do you about a set that Larry wrote, pre Sword and Flame?
Battalion level set covering Napoleonic to Franco Prussian War.
It is the set I use for my Indian Mutiny games.

Thanks you all for the comments.

Marine 0846:
Trying to find the right set of rules has been difficult, I was trying to find something that combined gameplay with the right period characteristics but without any luck, in the end as I mentioned in the AAR I used Flames in the Punjab as the basis for my rules and had to write the rest myself, so:
Movement distances, Firing and the idea of cards for deciding sequence was from the rules however I altered them all to reflect how I wanted to play.
Melee and Morale was written from scratch. 

I am afraid I donít know of the set you mention but will have a search on the web.

Chassepot and Needlegun are the Franco Prussian wars rules written by Larry Brom.

Great looking game thank you for sharing.
