For all that they feel like a Napoleonic version of a Robin Hood story, and a bit cheap at times, they’re fairly representative of the way I want to game historicals: As adventure yarns rather than simulations of reality.


I was this close to my 6mm sci-fi Sharpe game. He pursued some Hussars through a cave network only to emerge in a different time period. He would adventure there for a few games and then return to the cave, but each time he emerged he was in another time period.

I had dinosaurs and Daleks all ready.

Never did do it though.
