Please see link for another refight of the tenth scenario from Neil Thomas' One Hour Wargames book, set in the Horse & Musket period this time with the board the right way around!

Another nail biter! I had wondered why you make your infantry bases deep. But I see it is to hold the very nice casualty markers. 1/300 is such a practical scale for a quick bash on a small table.

Ha! I wish I were as thoughtful as that. I just use 60mm x 30mm since the Polemos set of rules recommends them and they make DBA look a little nicer. But I have discovered as an emergent property that you can often stick the little casualty markers on the front of the bases too…

Just seeing this now. RE your postscript. NT rules are really
wonderful for modifying to taste. I have also done some of this and added just enough for my personal enjoyment without impacting NT's original intent.

Do you have any solo mechanisms?

Hi Tortorella,

Entirely agreed regarding Neil Thomas' rules. I think it is only his WW2 set that I have never been able to get into a shape I like.

I don't really use specific solo mechanisms in Neil Thomas games. The order mechanism I use in this one provides that bit of extra randomness but really with simple rules and no more than 12 elements per side, I normally just turn the table around, metaphorically speaking.
