Great looking game Captain. Completely wrong Miniature manufacturer lol to use, but great looking just the same.

Thanks, I'm afraid to say I started in with the Redoubt range shortly before you started producing your range   :(

Any chance I could get you to send me a copy of your F&I variant, Cap?

-Doc


Sure. Actually, they are adapted for pirates, but they work fine for F&IW  ;)
PM me your email address and I'll whizz them over to you.



Just to jump on the bandwagon, could we ask for a set too please ?

No probs. Will try to do this evening.

Just to reinforce that they are C18th-ised Kill Zone rules adapted for pirates - but they work fine for F&IW too.  ;)

Thanks for the rules Cpt.  Though they are scripted for more of the BP era, Im addapting them for Western/Goth games.  My friend and I are currently making up a game board, loosely styled from the Dark Tower book series meets SP/Western.  Only good times lay ahead.  Thanks a ton!

Ah, you boys are too kind  ;)

I am sorry, le Matt, that the only thing missing from my French & Indian Wars table is the French. Allez les bleus! (Or was it les blancs in those days?)

C'est la vie.

Blimey O'Reilly, you do like 'em colourful don't you Cap'n?  :o

This is a fantastic set up, I am insanely jealous. I admire your dedication to actually finish terrain pieces.  :)

Just wanted to say that is a beautiful game. I wouldn't be too concerned about using pirates for your civilians. I swap figures from pirate ranges and others in this period too. It all depends on how the figure looks. Civilian dress for Europeans in this period doesn't differ much in the colonies. About the only difference between pirates & other colonial civilians is that pirates are less likely to wear foot wear & might have some brighter colors. Other wise not much difference on average.

I prefered them missing than be spanked as the last time they appeared on the field against the Reds (or was it the whites in Twikenham ?)    lol

C'est la vie, certes, but the chariot always "swing low, swing chariot" !

Oh, the shame,
Matt
