I'd forgotten how nicely painted those figures were. They're really nice.

They are. I have lots of piccies of those fellows in action from our various games down a few years  :)

Thanks Steve and Richard.

I think I’ve got about 130 painted that I want to rebase and revarnish as I did with the above, though I reckon I must also have about 100 unpainted or awaiting assembly, including more artillery, more cavalry and more baggage train.

It just so happens that I have started on building a generic sandy-coloured board (on which this game was played) that will serve as the basis for southern England (WotR), Iberia (Napoleonic Peninsular War), Arizona (Old West), possibly Afghanistan (Second Afghan War, though I might not keep that project), Sicily (WW2, 1943) and somewhere as yet undecided for Future Wars / Sci Fi. The downside is that I now have an awful lot of terrain that is surplus to requirements.......... ouch.

a man can never have too much terrain

a great project again, Steve. I hope you come to BLAm this year and we can have another game. Maybe a SSS-Game with Dr. the viking again, it was so much fun.

The fun is in the making, not the storing  :D

Hi Dirk, BLAM is pencilled in for this year and I’d like to bring a game. I doubt that it will be SSS though as it’s highly likely I’ll have sold it by then as part of my necessary ‘space recovery’.  :( :)

I don´t know the rules Fistful of Lead, so I have to ask if the napoleonic version is usable in lieu of the Wild West version (because if I bought it, the napoleonic one would be more useful to me).

Useable as a basis for modification to play WotR?

Most certainly, as FFOL:Horse & Muskets is a derivation of FFOL:Reloaded.  I have H&M for my own Nappy project but I haven’t played it yet - it certainly reads well and elements of it were brought forward into my WotR interpretation. Neither version includes rules for Units but if you check out the impending Sci-Fi variant (AARS here and at the Wiley Games blog and info at Kickstarter) that has Goons, which influenced my mod for Units.

So why did I mod Reloaded rather than H&M?

Just a personal preference to start with the source material, that’s all.

emosbur,
Fistful of Lead: Horse & Musket is for small scale skirmishes, think Sharpe and his boys or Last of the Mohicans.
Here''s a few from LAF:

And

http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=107454.0
 and here's some I ran last weekend at TwisterCon:
http://baronvonj.blogspot.com/2018/03/weekend-at-twistercon.html

I am working on a larger scale variant, but right now I like the level of battle we're imagining here. heroic little fights in the skirmish line or behind the lines. Plenty of good rules out there for great big battles. Also lets you try a lot of periods without investing a lot of money. Ten figs all you need for 1v1. Can play 8 players easy.
Give us a google for all the reviews.
