Sons of Liberty

The rules are meant for "medium" sized battles of 2000 to 5000 men per side. Since the game scale is 1:20, this means a typical battle will have about 150-200 figures per side. Smaller games of this sort are often more enjoyable and engrossing than huge "table crushers" where 1000-figure armies bash at each other into the wee hours of the morning.

Each figure represents 20 infantry, 10 cavalry, or 3 gunners. A gun model represents 1 actual gun. The length of a turn is not strictly defined, but about 10 minutes seems right, all things considered. The rules use 10-sided dice (D10) for all random calculations. The rules measure distances in inches. One inch represents 15 paces (about 40 feet). The rules are meant for 25mm size figures.
