    Just finished a review of these popular rules. For those familiar with them, what are your opinions of them?

    Peninsular action using General de Brigade

    Good review. I’m going to get into the Peninsular War this year, and so I am shopping rules sets. Leaning towards Lasalle, but General de Brigade meets most of the things I am looking for. Counting figures for calcs in 6mm doesn’t sound fun though – I’d rather work off of bases.

    How would General de Brigade work with guerrillas? Just as some variant skirmish line?

    Hi William, thanks for checking it out. Guerrillas are mentioned in the rules…….they would probably be considered a small unit of skirmishers and you could rate them as untrained levies…….not much good on a proper battlefield, but maybe lurking on the fringes or buttoned up in a building.

    As for Fire…….I tend to be anal-retentive, so I like counting figures during fire. I also use 15mm, so I definitely see what you mean about 6mm…. In the newest Deluxe edition, you could go either way on the fire tables, figs or bases……that change was put in directly due to concerns like yours…

    I hope that helps!

    And if you have a standard number of figures on a base, counting figures isn’t hard no matter the scale. Is it to your liking? Well, it may not be, but it is not insurmountable.

    Cheers,
