Tripods & Hussars


Tripods & Hussars is a quick playing set of rules to simulate the battles of The War of the Worlds as described by H.G. Wells. In order to make a competitive game, I've made a few modifications to the situation described in War of the Worlds. The most critical change is that the Martians were more limited in their supply of Black Gas and couldn't simply fire at every copse in sight.

Scale
One stand represents one Martian tripod, one infantry company, one cavalry troop or one artillery battery. These rules can be played at any scale, but 6mm-15mm is probably optimum. One inch represents 25 yards.

Basing
Base infantry and cavalry on a 1" wide base. The depth of the base isn't important. Infantry looks best in a 2 deep skirmish line, with 6-8 figures. Artillery should be based on a base large enough (hopefully 1" wide is sufficient) to accommodate one gun, plus limber and gunners. Base sizes aren't real important; just try to keep them consistent.
