Wow, now that's a very creative clash. I love it.

Marvelously evocative with beautiful figures. Question, would these rules work for my 15mm India 1770s and Caribbean 1790s? I suspect that they are unfortunately set only for earlier encounters?

You can play these rules for yours armies in India and Caribbean sea (18th century).
Good game

Beautiful AAR. Irregular Wars is one of my favorite rule sets. Ironically enough I am painting up my Aztecs right now. The rules are designed for small scale battles during the age of discovery. The shooting rules are that you fire gunpowder weapons during one turn and it takes the next turn to reload. These weapons can't fire if it's raining. Archaic weapons (bows, slings, etc.) can fire every turn and are a -1 to hit in rain. The army lists in the rule book include various Indian armies as well as Caribbean appropriate to include natives, English adventurers, Colonial Spanish, French Huguenots, etc. The armies are designed for a slightly earlier period but a lot of the stuff would easily cross over to the early and mid 1700s.

I agree about the rules, fun set. I haven't played them in awhile but I went for an exotic pair of opponents – Tlingits from Northwest America v.s. coastal Californian Indian tribes. They made for fun games, the Tlingits would travel long long distances just to raid and collect slaves.

Enjoyed your battle report too!

Good idea!
It's very original.
Have you got some photos?

Took some originally but lost them in the Photobucket fiasco/ripoff.

The Tlingits were from Eureka, very nice figures.
