    Hello esteemed membership!

    I am looking for a set of skirmish rules for the F&IW that capture the flavor of the period but simple enough to teach to new players at conventions. Some parameters:

    I am going to use individually mounted figures.
    Each figure should represent one individual.
    Each player will be controlling a small unit, say 5-15 figures.
    Fitting on a playing surface of 4′ by 6’…or less.

    My setting will be a trading post set within an Indian village, with raids by one side or another.

    Is there anything out there like this?
    Thanks!

    I like Rebels and Patriots and they seem to fit your figure count and table size.

    I’d tend to agree with Kyoteblue.  Also the rules are easy to understand, great fun, can handle multiple players and – best of all for a thrifty sort like me – the rules themselves are quite cheap!

    We’ve just started in on ‘Muskets & Tomahawks 2’by Studio Tomahawk. I believe they meet all your stated criteria.

    Never wrestle with a pig. You both get muddy and the pig just likes it.

    Ahhh, looking like some good recommendations – thank you. I also forgot I own a copy of Song of Drums and Tomahawks, which is even a more granular set.
