Napoleonic Division Battle

Have started playing around with Muskets and Mohawks for Napoleonics. Some changes are required as Muskets and Mohawks is written with each unit being a company. The Napoleonic version moves up a  notch to the more traditional battalion, battery, regiment scale.

This requires some changes in mechanics, ranges and so on. More significant changes are required in the solo/coop campaigns and if you will, AI.

Here is a shot of a game in progress. Having randomly chosen a couple of storage drawers we see Hanoverians assaulting a French position. Both sides' skirmish lines have just engaged. The first Hanoverian brigade is about to advance through their skirmishers. The French are formed in three lines; skirmishers and guns in the front, followed by one brigade in line and a second in column of divisions.

All told a "division" comes out to about 60 infantry, and one gun with 6-8 crew. Naturally either side may be augmented by reinforcement over the course of play.

Early days yet but so far so good.

John Carter of Mars for Swordplay

Here are some quick and easy rules to adapt Swordplay to the John Carter of Mars world.
These are not the definitive rules but instead a free entry level version to Mars gaming.

 IMHO the ultimate John Carter pic from the incomparable Frank Frazetta.
