Spanish Fury: Actions!

These rules cover conflicts involving at most 2500 men, at the least about 500. This includes all types of low-level fighting, from ambushes, prison-breaks, cattle rustling to the storming of same forts. We tried to keep the rules down to a minimum, so not every contingency is covered. If you run into an awkward rules situation, either write us or insert your own idea. These rules are really meant to be taken for fun rather than as overly realistic. Still, we tried our best to keep a balance.

The basic unit of the game is the squadron, which is composed of somewhere between 25-50 men.

These rules were written primarily for 15mm figures, but should work for any. Each inch is around 10-15 yards, each turn a few minutes.
Spanish Fury; Actions! page 2
For Basing, we standardize on a 30mm square with 3-4 foot figures or 1-2 horse figures on it. Any similar system will work fine.

Battlefinder! Western Europe - 1000 A.D.-1700 A.D.

You can use this in conjunction with our miniature rulesets (Strongbow, SF: Actions and SF: Battle) or with any other set you might own…

Spanish Fury: Duel

You knew it was coming! How can we have games such as Actions! where officers can fight in single combat, and not have an amusing set of dueling rules? Clearly we couldn’t. These rules are used for those so willing to fight out any kind of duel. You can even use them for Sail!, Lanterna! And Voyage! Since our Spanish Fury! Systems uses individual named officers, the scope for this game is obvious.

Spanish Fury: Voyage

Spanish Fury: Voyage
The original idea behind this game was to simulate English campaigns off the coast of Spain between 1587 and 1603, as well as the Spanish Campaign to conquer the Azores. The more we worked on it however, the more the draw of the Caribbean pulled us westward. The idea of the corsairs trading and raiding was something that fit in so well with Actions! and Sail! that the project, half finished, was changed in scope about 3000 miles…

The general flow of play is this: Corsairs sail into the Caribbean looking to either plunder ship, towns or to trade, or perhaps all three. The Empire player must drive them out of the area while still performing the duties of a Captain-General (keeping the empire running).
