I have just posted a battle report for the ongoing battle of Rolica from 1808 using old school rules and beautifully painted Hinton Hunt 1/72 scale metal miniatures from the 60s and 70s. Pop on by and catch up on the battle if you can.

Explain the knocked over figures?? I assume casualties – and if so do you pull them off the table or leave them??

Good old-fashioned gaming

You are correct and casualties stay as they lay. A memorial of sorts to their sacrifice.

I remember a set of rules we played back in the 70s and you glued your figures to the bases and snapped them off when they became casualties. We did not use painted Airfix figures in those days :)

Outstanding in every way, but then I'm a bit biased!

Excellent casualty system. The only improvement I ever found was to replace them with casualty figures every turn or so. That takes a lot of casualty figures. The way you do it is completely acceptable, and the reason I have not mounted my 1/72 on move stands.
