Many thanks for the info.
I will try the Ganesha points calculator.
I will use americans and brittish sailors and probably end up painting some french.
At the end of august i will have a game and then i will post a kind of AAR possibly with pics.

I made a game of SDS and its lovelly and simple.
I played with french against brittish, roughly 12 figures per side (unfortunately no pics).
I can only recomend them.

Glad you liked it. I think it is very slick and fun. My son thinks it is his favourite rules system.
Theres more 28mm Superhero Madness at my blog, http://fourcoloursupers.blogspot.com/
And for Ultra-modern Wargaming check out Hotel Zugando at http://ultramoderngaming.blogspot.co.uk/

Most importantly its umpredictable.
You can do some smart movements and be ready to finish your oponent and then you have bad luck with the actions and the action turns the oposite side.
It also allows to field small forces without spending much money.

Just dug out my own copy from the old hard drive. I should get a couple of figs and get some games running...  :)

What an excellent set up; complete and compact- just right for a skirmish game.
I need to return to my own Napoleonic skirmishing soon I think. Inspirational stuff!

thanks for the comments everyone...I am honoured if I can inspire Matakashi, as his work is a constant source of inspiration to me.
