AWI completed

as the title says

both armies done apart from adding half a dozen flags, then let the colonist rebels beware. "The British are coming, the British are coming!!"


  1. Gordon,

    I forgot to ask earlier, what rules are you using for your AWI games..?? cheers

  2. I'm using the most excellent Washington's Army by Peter Pig, if you go here, you'll see the contents of some of the ready made armies for it. But of course just us the Pendraken AWI range, IMHO despite being 10mm look much better sculpts than the 15mm on that page.

    Definitly a must have ruleset, a bit Warmasterish/BKCish in that the command and control is handled a bit similarly. A general has a quality (between 1 and 3), a unit has a quality (between 1 and 3). The brigade general tries to activate one of his units, if he's a 2 and the unit is a 2 and its say 6 inches away, he has to roll 6 or more on 2d6. 2 for him, 2 for the unit, and a further 2 for each 3 inches away. Unit if activated then rolls 1d6 for the number of actions it can do that turn. Obviously a bit more to it than that, but thats the core mechanism.
