The smaller number of troops involved (in comparrison with Napoleonic or ACW armies) would allow us to use 25mm figures. We all wanted infantry to be in 2 ranks. Even basing was discussed, settling on Games Workshop flock. Finally, we looked at rules for the period. After trying a few different sets, we played our first game of “British Grenadier” in 2004.
The first game was okay. The mechanics went well, but there were a lot of questions scribbled on the notepaper. When we went through the rules in detail afterwards, every answer was found. So, we made up playsheets (Duncan notes: I’ve been a fan of playsheets every since playing Johnny Reb at Durham WG) and kept on playing.
Figures are a mix of Wargames Foundry, Old Glory, Front Rank.
