Today, we have a teaser for a forthcoming project! After the success of Two Splendid Lines, the 6mm regimental-level American Civil War game, I'm currently researching and planning a similar game (as yet nameless) which will be an English Civil War equivalent.
Players will take command of a battalia of pike and shot, and have to use them in concert to defeat an enemy battalia. Unlike most P&S era games, where the two are lumped together and just treated as one all-arms unit, in this game each wing must be ordered separately to work together.
I'm a member of Colonel Overton's Regiment of Foot (as my Facebook friends will know from my semi-regular pictures), so when I ordered the 6mm Baccus figures, I decided to recreate our distinctive New Model Army red coats. Their opponents will probably be either Irish or Scots - to be decided.

|No matter how much you rub your chin, we won't win this...|
We fought a 2mm game to determine how long the Russians could hold on for - not long, as it turned out. After three turns the defences collapsed and most of the defenders fell back towards the town. However, with a cunning but risky flank march, the Japanese managed to sieze the town with a bloodless coup de main. We then fought a quick 28mm Trench Raiders game to decide what happened to the dramatis personae when the Russian HQ was overrun!
