A novel take on the 1798 Rebellion and good going to get a campaign done in a morning!  Great looking miniatures. Thanks for sharing.

Great looking game and interesting idea! I'd like to see a map of the table. What tactical rules were you using?

Rules taken directly from the board game risk. I will see if I can get a plan to share.

Great idea.  Are you able to share a map/ table layout and the rules please.  Forming ideas for a War of 1812 campaign in a similar vein.

Great write up, looked a lot of fun!

Just like you said. I had to hear it twice. Thank you.

Hi Guys

I added the scenario and basic mechanism sheets plus a plan of the game onto the blog, you should be able to download but if not give me a shout.

Cheers really helpful as wasn’t sure if artillery represented 5 dice, cavalry 3 etc.  Great idea!

Very nice. May try this using totally incorrect figures: Vendee rebels and war of 1812 militia, woodland Indians as rebel skirmishers, and Waterloo British.

Whatever works, esecially if its to test the mechanisms.
