About 2 years ago I decided that having done 1812 for 20 years in 54mm and 40mm at various level from skirmish games to refighting historical battles, I didn't want to continue as I had been doing but neither did I want to drop it. A few test games showed that a Square Brigadier version was just right for short, easy to set up and play, One Hour style games. More experiments showed that 2 stand, 12 figure infantry units on the 6" grid worked well for me. They could also supply 1 stand units for use on the 3" grid portable board. All I had to do was rearrange my existing units and rebase, touch up or add a few figures to fill out my existing 40mm British and American armies.
So there I was, starting to consider scenarios, then I looked at the cluster of figures in three different basing systems with various organizations and a few figures needing repair.....oh......I had made the decision about what I needed to do to make my 1812 armies game ready at a minutes notice again, but..... I hadn't gotten around to it.
