I have been tinkering on and off with some ideas for an 18th Century toy soldier game for some time. Recently I decided that it was time to inflict the thing on other people. Five players - John, Pete, Russell, Diego & Lloyd - assembled and I provided a couple of boxes of 54mm toys. The 'rules' such as they are, borrow elements from both Funny Little Wars and Charles S Grant's The War Game. Infantry and cavalry units are composed of 12 and 6 figures respectively. For this test game the Earl's Army Red had 5 infantry, 1 cavalry and 1 gun. The General's Army White had 6, 2 and 1.
