Here is a link to photos of Skirmish Wargamers's 54mm 1/32nd scale demo game at Colours this year. All the figures were conversions, mostly plastic but a few metal too.

What a wonderful looking table.

Some of my fondest wargames' memories were from playing the Colonial Skirmish Wargames Rules… though never in 54mm.

I was busy running 2nd Newbury for the Pike & Shot/BFT but managd to have a wander round and very much enjoyed this eye-catching game thumbs up

54mm/1:32 is a great scale for shows and collecting.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes, it had a lot of interest.

It was actually 3 games in 1. There were 3 tables which had a road diagonally across so they joined in one corner. The French on each table had, and cross all three tables (by moving round) to get off on their opposite corner to win. This way we could have 12 players split into 3 x 4 so they could play their games at their own pace, and even with different rules!
