Second Boer War?
« on: January 13, 2018, 06:01:49 PM »
Hi chaps,

Having read Martin's piece on 'all on one side' (see Conquerors and Kings section), and Leslie's follow up and link to the By Jiingo site, I was rather taken with the idea of doing something in the Second Boer War using PITS and/or Square Bashing.
Has anyone had a go at this using Piggy figs and rules?  I would assume the PP colonial brits would be OK for the Imperial forces, but what about the Boers (should they put in an appearance on the table??
Any and all ideas very welcome.
Many thanks in advance.
Best,

Stephen

ACW rebels would be a good place to start.
And in the heads range (range 6) you will find broad brimmed hats, 26, 32, 52, 112,
Try some of the western figures range 15.

British soldiers in the Boer War often only saw drifts of gunsmoke rather than actual Boers. It is interesting to note that the only Boer infantry in Irregular’s 6mm range are all prone.

Thanks chaps. Could probably envisage some sort of game where all players at on the Imperial side while the Boats are controlled by an umpire or random events.
Best.

Hurrah! Autocorrect creates the Boer navy.
