I have read your QB scenario. You have done a fine job of capturing the events, sequence and spirit of the battle. I am going to blow the dust off my 28mm Quatre Bras project and paint up the remaining lead and plastic pile so I can use your rules and scenario!
Many thanks for these and the inspiration.
The units do fit on the Kallistra hex. Figures are based on 45 X 20 Even figs on the larger bases 45 X 40 fit with in square formation. Only artillery 2 guns are over sized for a hex with my base sizes 45 X 80 but at 28mm these are the smallest bases I could use with 2 crew and 1 gun model but no problem.
So excellent rules and appropriate with my basing! I will push ahead with painting and basing the balance of lead pile to refight Quatre Bras!
I am working on two sets, ACW and napoleonic, they both come from two totally different times and directions in my past, so i have been in a quandary whether to make one set more like the other to get some streamlining between these close periods - I think they are probably too dissimilar to do that without throwing the baby out with the bath water.
I was inspired enough to undercoat Hanoverian and French units yesterday so the rules have triggered the impetus I much needed to get those damn 28's painted!
The rules could be crudely adapted for ACW by adding smooth bore musket and different artillery ratings, plus maybe special bonus attack dice for rebel yell charges and elite units such as zoauves and iron brigade?? I suppose some of the formations will not be relevant but a simple rule addendum would suffice instead of re-writing another set?
I would be happy to have a go with them if you feel inclined to draft a set.
I will aim to do a Bat Rep post once I have enough units painted and based to do the rules justice for the Naps, but that could take a year!
Yeah if you read somewhere that Dave and Tony wrote some hack-based rules for Napoleonics? This is all true they wrote the rules on it I would like to see a copy like you.Thanks!I usually work on furniture.
