I am a big fan of Daniel Mersey's War game rules that he has done for Osprey Publishing. His later rules, which started with Lion Rampant, have been done in collaboration with Michael Leck. It was really no surprise that I purchased Rebels and Patriots and started my first real army project I have done in awhile.

All great, but I love your Indians.

Great figures! Love the period as well, living less than 10 miles from the site of Braddock's Defeat. I drive past Fort Duquesne/Pitt every day.

Thanks Tom. I currently working on a large Huron War Band and I have another 6 extra Indians that can be a small force for both the French and the British. The Indians above are members of the Mohegan Ranger Company of Rogers' Rangers.

Very nice – good call for the Highlanders; for some reason a disproportionate number of the British army's Highland regiments served in North America

After Culloden and the Highland Clearance the only way for a Highlander to bear arms was by serving in the British Army. The Highland regiments were therefore ideal troops to send to North America.

Very nice units for an interesting period. Enjoy!

"Send savages to fight savages." That has always been British Imperial policy.. grin

Does Rebels and Patriots play like Lion Rampant?

Dining Room Battles24 Nov 2020 2:09 p.m. PST

Sundance – It is similar but there are subtle differences between the different period rules of Lion Rampant, Dragon Rampant, The Men That Would be Kings, The Pikeman's Lament and Rebels and Patriots.

Cool thanks! You might have just helped revitalize a project that has languished for years!
