Does anyone play skirmish games in 18th century using individually-based figures? I have a large 15mm collection for standard battle games, as well as a ton of MBA renaissance/medieval buildings for fantasy and medieval skirmish gaming, and have begun to wonder whether people playing with 28mm SYW figures do this level of skirmish.

I am not talking about North American conflicts in this period, btw, but European.

All the time. I do not stand base any of my figures but do have movement trays to speed up movement.

Oh, yes. Talk to the Seven Years War Association. For myself, I get about half-way there: I'll use big individually-mounted castings and play Charge! or something along those lines, then switch to smaller scales to do the bigger battles of the period.

Way back in the mists of time, Foundry published a free set for continental 7YW skirmish rules. If fact, it was the forerunner of the "Rules with No Name" set. I lost my copy but someone may still have a set floating around.

Some people do the main event in Europe but I have to admit that all my SYW skirmish games are set in North America

The Lardies do 7YW in Europe with Sharp Practice. Very pretty period.

Is nothing sacred?

Still, given I don't believe in the big fairy in the sky, what is? You go right ahead and don't mind me….pitchfork, torch, scaffold pieces, Tom is bringing the rope……………….
