This was the first set of rules I ever used although I never owned a copy. If anyone can supply a copy to me would they contact me at allan.mountford@virgin.net?

Thanks in advance.

Al

If you get hold of one, I would be interested. Always enjoyed them.

If I track one down I'll let you know straight away.

If I remember correctly:

25mm figures
1:25 figure scale
1":12 yards ground scale
Casualties recorded in men
Traditional casualty table cross-referencing figures vs factors
Columns of attack counted the first three ranks and half the next three ranks in melee
Etc

Misting over as I type.

I don't recall them Allan, sorry.

My first set used a cardboard dial to work out casualties – does anyone remember that set? You turned the dial for figures firing to get hits. Don't remember anything else about them. This would be around 1976 ish

Hi Marc
That may have been the predecessor to Newbury Rules, produced by Leicester Wargames Group, authored by Maurice Roth and Trevor Halsall.

All things come to he who waits – and is lucky!

Finally tracked down a pristine copy of these rules via Noble Knight Games in the USA.
