18th Century imaginary wars in miniature...
Glad to see your 18th century troops back in action! Looks like a good game. Must add those rules to my mental list f things to procure at some point. WHa would say are the strengths of this particular rule set?Best Regards,Stokes
Thanks Stokes, it's nice to hear from you.Honours of War works well solo due to initiative rules for both moving and shooting which makes for a lot of decision making during play. Both moving and shooting is by alternate brigades from each side, the side with the initiative may start. It's quite neat.I also like the rules for rallying and returning to the fray, but when a unit is done for it is gone for good.I had to split my large regiments into smaller 16 or 24 man battalions and use my regiments as brigades but that's easy to do. I kind of spoiled "Charge" for myself by multi basing and having too many toy soldiers to handle myself. This game has no casualty removal and the current vogue of casualty/ morale markers works well with my multi based soldiers.Finally the rules are quite inexpensive.Thanks again,Paul.
Good to see you back in action.
