It was right after the Buffs stormed the little village that I realized that my fears were right, I was playing and modifying the wrong set of rules. This wasn't really a MacDuff game, it was a Hearts of Tin game. Now I'm really glad I didn't rewrite MacDuff before playing!
Luckily I can play HofT without actually gluing the figures to bases so I switched rules mid game and got 1 turn of modified HofT before having to attend to other things. Hopefully I'll finish up tomorrow and have a look-see at HofT to see what changes would be needed. One thing already decided on is a slight increase in the number of hits per stand to 2,3 or 4 depending on quality vs the current 1,2, or 3 .
A HofT Game of the Week from 2008
So basically, troops in shakos, Indians and American/Canadian militia types fighting amongst woods and farms. Troops in forage caps, esp with curtains, fighting in a drier climate with adobe houses. It may be time to revisit those other Indians after all or maybe just invent those indigenous Atlantican armies.
