I helped Pz8 with some of the Colonial Rules, and was wondering if anyone had thought about other Colonial Periods to use with the rules.
My thoughts were with the Maori Wars 1840's.
Some thoughts on troops:
British Regulars : 1D6 1 Green, 2-4 Regular, 5,6-Veteran.
British Naval : 1D6 1 Green, 2-5 Regular, 6- Veteran. +1 to D6 roll for Naval Gun Crews.
Militia :1D6 1,2 Green, 3-6 Regular. +1 to D6 roll if commanded by a British Officer.
Civilians : 1D6 1,2,3,4,5 Green, 6 Regular +1 to D6 roll if commanded by a British Officer.
Maori : 1D6 1 Green, 2-3 Regular, 5 Veteran, 6 Fanatic. Before organising the Maori Units, roll 1D6 for the number of Maori Snipers that the Maori player can field from the total Force of figures.
The above are just ideas/thoughts and are just to give a variety to troop class.
I was also thinking about having a Pz8 Colonial Core rule set, with no weapon stats as such, but with Period specific sheets with ALL relevant Period rules on that sheet - so looking at probably 2 sheets/side of A4.
