Today we had another game using my American Revolution armies at our club, if you want to see who won this one, please go to this link

Just wondering do you carry through one battle to next any casualties or moral ?
Looks like a hard fought but fun game

Hi 14Bore, no, we just (at the mo) are using basically the same armies from game to game. I tinkered with a simple campaign system for the 7YW, but we soon found carrying modifications to troop numbers/quality skewed the games too much, and seemed a lot of work for little appreciable gain!
I have 2 or 3 brigades in my storage boxes that have never seen the light of battle- they are too heavy and bulky to take down to the club on the bus!, so we can rationalise losses by saying some of these units replace badly shot up ones?

I will have to get my Marylanders out sometime!

That looked to be a great game, very back and forth. A game I would have enjoyed playing very much.
