Wargame Rules


RAISING MINIATURE ARMIES FOR THE LATE 18TH CENTURY

I am very keen to keep my wargame rules as simple as possible yet capture the character of the 1790s. Accordingly, most of the French troops are 'levee' battalions, which I have chosen to base in column as their ability to change formation on a battlefield must have been limited, nor do I believe their volley fire had any great value. Of better quality, able to change formation, will be white-coated regular and blue-coated volunteer battalions aided by a fair number of skirmishers. The British, Austrian, Dutch and German armies are often outnumbered, but they maintain the discipline and order of typical 18th century armed forces. Interestingly, French revolutionary cavalry have little in common with their later Napoleonic counterparts, the former are few in number, often poorly mounted, and no match for those in the service of the Allies.

The 4th South Carolina (Artillery) Regiment 1776

Just completed two galloper guns for my South Carolina Artillery Regiment, serving in the American Revolution. Interestingly, this unit was able, apparently, to serve as horse artillerymen, and included limber riders as part of their formation. The figures are converted Hinchcliffe X-range.

  1. yet another attractive unit. The AWI really allows one to research and create many small units which are a delight to paint up. All very rewarding.
    Brilliant looking unit.
