|Atlantican irregulars preparing for war.|
(mostly Scruby from Historifig)
In part this nostalgia goes back to memories of small 54mm Volley & Bayonet games with my friend Tom in the late 90's, and in part to my various cardtable and portable games.
|I think this 2015 post sums up much of the attraction reasonably well.|
Quickly reviewing my shelves, I was relieved to be reminded that my shiny Colonial 40mm collection was in limbo and that this was just the sort of thing that I had had in mind for them when I got around to it. In other words, a small, limited, collection of figures, based and organized to quickly set up, play, and pack away small games. Phew! The perfect period for it.
A quick check confirmed that I had enough Brits (by any other name) and almost enough of my Not-Boer and fictional Native opponents ready to play with only a little work. I also have enough unpainted figures on hand to finish the armies.
I should be able to get a game on the table by this weekend to see how it fits.
