"Earlier this week, Baccus announced the forthcoming release of their latest set of rules in the Polemos series Ruse de Guerre, written by Glenn Pearce.

This set of rules complements Baccus' recent releases of several new infantry packs for their French Indian War range and indeed, new army packs for the FIW will be added to the existing range of Seven Years War figures.

However, Ruse de Guerre doesn't just cover the French Indian War, but also the American War of Independence and the War of 1812…"

Ruse de Guerre is now available at Baccus in soft cover in black and white or in full colour with black and white printer version on Rules-on-a-stick, or a pdf also in full colour. Although designed for 6mm most scales and basing systems can be used as is or with some minor house rules.

Picked up the PDF. Looking forward to trying them out, my first impression is generally positive, they seem streamlined to my tastes.

Thanks Anthropicus! It's always nice to hear from someone with good taste.

Streamlining was probably one of the hardest things to do. Despite years of playtesting and burning the midnight oil for what seemed like forever, I was still trimming some fat just days before it was published.

Sincerely hope it lives up to your first impression.

Best regards,
