With the 239th anniversary of the Seige of Yorktown upon us, I have revisited the various gaming possibilities with the BMC Playset. Quality of scuplts aside, the set really does have a high number of playable scenarios. I hope many of you that have one of these, rethink its possibilities.

Great stuff! What figures did you use for the standard bearers?

I don't have the Yorktown set, but have some of the smaller sets as well as some compatible plastics (probably the Accurate figs).
They served as inspiration for my own set of (very light) AWI rules. I might have to spring for the Yorktown set just to boost things.

Aducknamedjoe I found these some years ago in antique store in a Playset made by "Awesome Kids", which I believe is now out of business. They turn up on eBay once in a while. They are plastic.

Google Gettysburg Toy Soldier Shop. He has a very well stocked plastic toy soldier selection. BMC is among them. John is a great guy to deal with, too.
