Lots of time gaming over the last nearly 40 years, and I've a number of skirmish scenario systems I can pirate ideas from, however, I'm wondering if anyone has published a volume[s] with historical scenarios of the FIW.

And yes, I can steal ideas from "Last of the Mohicans" I own the film!

But, sometimes it is good to just adapt a pre-made historical scenario that I didn't spend a lot of time researching.

Thanks in advance for any leads!

Have you looked at the "Muskets and Tomahawks" supplement for F&IW,AWI and 1812 called "Redcoats and Tomahawks"? It has a fairly clever scenario generation system that feels historically plausible my FLGS group has used and enjoyed.

I wrote a rule set called "Buckskins and Rangers" with a dozen historical scenarios included. Check out my website:

Try looking for an older set of rules called, "Habitants & Highlanders" from the Canadian Wargamers Group. Very popular in the mid/late 90s. Along with the rules are about 10 scenarios and a campaign system. The scenarios can easily be adaptable to other small skirmish game system. Well worth the find.

Good luck!

Well, I have a great book I'm reading by John Grenier called "The Far Reaches of Empire: War in Nova Scotia 1710-1760". If you can't make decent skirmish scenarios out of that, I'll eat my cocked hat.

Who is fighting whom in Nova scotia??

War on the Run by John F. Ross is full of scenario inspiration, I believe. A detailed account of Roger's Rangers various encounters and tactics. An early example of a special forces unit, according to the author.
