We played a skirmish game with my individually mounted Napoleonics, mostly Britains, with some painted plastics. We used the western gunfighter rules called A Fistful of Lead. The rules for muzzle loading slowed the game down and we only needed the first three feet of an eight foot table. The scenario had a retreating French column having to defend the French general's lady and a cart full of gold from the British Lights and their Spanish Guerrilla allies.

Well, that is simply breathtaking. Napoleonic gaming falls at about the bottom of my interest group, but this…this I would play in a second. Gorgeous!

There is a special delight to 54's. Thank you for sharing!

Nice. What figures did you use, particularly for the Spanish?

Thanks, All, for the nice words. The 95th Rifles and the French Voltigeurs are all Britains. The 71st Glasgow Highland Light Infantry are A Call to Arms, very well painted by someone other than me. The French in overcoats are Front Rank. The Spanish did not play much of a part in the game. I used a variety of pirate figures for them. I plant to buy some of the Irregular Miniatures Guerrillas at some point.

Man this looks Great.
While I don't have "A" particular favorite period for gaming, personally I'd 'never' go larger than my 28's, simply because I'm sure it would show my -lack- of skill at detail work.
But they always look great on a table!

Love the 71st…they even have the buff leather beltwork. The 95th are superb. I could well imagine the attraction of skirmishing in this scale vs a massive crowded battlefield in 18/28mm

Agreed on all points *G F. The days when 54's were SOP for gaming was before even my time, (60's child) I think it recalls our days of great battles on the floor with our Green Army men, IIRC, they're about 54.
