    They weren’t really very good esp. by today’s standards but I enjoyed Steve’s columns on the AWI in the original Courier magazine and I owe a love of the period to him.  he came out with an interesting campaign idea that was printed as well in the new Courier.

    Basics

    The following might help to understand the level of the game.

    1 – THE BASICS
    Game Scale
    These rules are written for 25/40mm scale figures. The figures (preferably painted) should be mounted on as small a base as possible. A 1″ round stand is recommended for infantry and a 1 x 2″ rectangular stand for cavalry.

    The basic maneuver unit of the game is the Company. The two terms, unit and Company, are interchangeable in the game. A Company is composed of between 4 and 12 figures. Companies include British and American regulars, Tory and Colonial militias, Indians, dragoons, and artillery. The lists provided in the appendix are for small engagements, not armies.

    • The next formation is the Battalion. This term will be used to describe all of the Companies in a force, even if they are not actually from the same battalion. The commander of a force is always referred to as a Leader of Worth (LoW). This term indicates that the commander is the player. In the campaign version of Light Bobs each commander starts with a LoW at the rank of Captain. As he progresses through battles his rank may increase which will make him a better commander with more and better troops.

    To Play Light Bobs You Will Need the Following
    Miniature Figures
    You will need a selection of figures to represent the troops under your command. On average, your force will consist of 33 figures.

    Game Area
    You will need a table on which to maneuver your figures. A 4′ x 4′ table is a good size; even larger areas are better when using larger number of figures. Table width should be increased based on the highest ranking LoW. A rule of thumb is 1′ wider than the highest ranking LoW. Tables 6′ or wider should have their depth increased to 5′.

    40mm Horse and Musket Games

    Currently I only game with 40mm figures by Trident and Sash and Sabre.  I use the Command and Colors Napoleonic rules modified for AWI or SYW.  If you are familiar with Volley and Bayonet I play at the level where a single base equals a half a battalion.  I use 120mm x 25mm stands and place 5, 6 or 7 figures depending on their over all order.  The C&C cards and dice make for a fast and fun game.  For convention games I use a Hotz Matt cloth done in 5″ hexes.  At home I play with inches.

    Guilford Courthouse Game

    My scenario ignores the first line and starts as the British approach the second.

    40mm Seven Years Wars

    I used Command and Colors for the rules but went with a squared table top.

    Dear Pijlie

    I have though long and hard before I replied.  I don’t want this thread to run off in the wrong direction nor do I want anybody thinking I have an ulterior motive.  Yes I am a published author (of sorts) but strictly medieval.  AWI and medieval are my two favorite periods and they go back and forth with me.

    On the plus side I must congratulate the author on his mentioning of the different “orders” that British used during the war.  Until recently this was either ignored by rules or just not know about.

    Let me say that as an exp. gamer in the period I have all the information given in the book and find it easy to find, however as I said for the novice it is a good compilation.  I will also point 0ut that out of 148 inside pages at lease 72 have half or more of themselves covered with color photographs of figures.  Most of which have little bearing on the page.

    Lastly while I haven’t gone through each scenario Bunker Hill stands out to me as missing the mark.   On a few points the water side where the Lights attacked is not present, the bunker itself is open backed which it wasn’t and Charleston is way to close and is presented as a viable part of the action.

    So I will leave it at that and don’t care to discuss it any further if that is all right.

    A very nice looking game.

    There is a decent description of the bunker in the book…  Bunker Hill by Nathaniel Philbrick, pages 196, 199.

    I am a subscriber to Jeff’s blog and he is always sending out great info.  And if you visit the blog you will be blown away by all the information for the American Revolution among others there.  This was a great bit of info for the new rules I am working on.

    Compared to all the figures the poor table looked tiny.  It looked great.  What rules do you use and is there a figure ratio etc.

    IMHO it is a decent intro to the war for the novice but I found it quite lacking in real substance and now regret my purchase,  And yes it is cover to cover wargaming porn.

    Sorry read your previous post about your rules.  Are they available outside of the magazine?

    I have seen you figures before and they are always an inspiration.

    What rules do you use?
