In the meantime I was curious about how the same rules and same scenario would feel with 20mm troops so I turned to the ACW.
|The Union Army of the Kennetcook have thrown pontoon bridges over the river and seized a bridgehead but the Rebs are in place on the heights, penning them in.(1/72 plastic)|
The units are still battalions with a strength 8 for infantry but they are now 4 stands each of 6 figures, in other words each stand equates to 2 toy soldiers in the last game. It won't be quite the same since the infantry are armed with rifled muskets and half the guns are smoothbore but the idea has always been that the rules should be able cover the 19thC with modules for various periods, even before I got ambushed by the grid idea.
