I fought a wee battle with these fine figures now that I took the time to set them out. I started adding in mounted Hinchliffe officers and artillery etc., and I thought, "Nooo, just use the figures to hand".
So what follows is a simple fight using the rules in Stuart Asquith's book "Military Modelling Guide To Wargaming". Due to the number involved, I did away with volley fire and instead let each figure fire. Range was 12", with 6 " close with a 5 or 6 a hit. Over 6" a 6 is a hit. I also did away with morale and changed the melee. I let the points stand (1 per foot, 2 per light horse) and counted them as dice to roll, a 6 is a hit. Here's the basic table, with converged battalions of 20 on the French side, and four battalions of 10 on the British side.
Surely morale and good sense would see these men off, but they are made of sterner stuff, and they close ranks in grim continental determination...
A fun little game.
(*edit* I have no idea how I ended up with giant photos on my blog.
Seriously, no idea.
At any rate, I'm leaving it as is, and I apologize to one and all for the odd sized photos and strange arrangement.
And I stand by the judgement that it was a fun game)
