Skirmish Rules

Each player commands several "men" or a "fire team" composed of a number of "men". Three miniature soldiers represent each man. One is standing, one is kneeling, or crawling, and one is prone. Depending on the man's posture on the table, he is represented by the appropriate miniature.

Having the correct miniature on the table is very important, because many times a standing man can be seen and fired on, but a kneeling or prone man would be safe.

This is a game played with 1/35 or 1/32 scale military miniatures… Anyone who wants to play this game but not in 54mm. will find that these rules work very well with no changes in any scale down to 15mm. They will show the vulnerability of the "Poor Bloody Infantry" in any size. Very small scales such as 12mm or smaller will probably not work as well, because they seem to emphasize the armored fighting vehicle, while these rules emphasize the infantry battle.
