Henry Hyde

Old School Wargaming, imaginations and the like have had a great deal to do with the resurgence in interest in the 18th century. Also there have been some interesting rulesets (Maurice, Black Powder and others – dare I even mention my own Shot, Steel & Stone included in my book) and a host of rather lovely miniatures coming to market in various scales, as well as the persistent affection for (and re-release of) Charles Grant’s “The War Game”, Peter Young’s “Charge!” and all that jazz. Personally, I like the 18th century because it has a certain ‘purity’ in tactical terms, alongside masses of colour and variety, and the emergence of interesting light troops. What’s not to like?
