New Playtest Upcoming --

Well, unless something unexpected happens we should have another "Tricorne Wars" playtest this coming Sunday.

Generals have now been generated for three of us in the "Wars for Arcadian Glory" (WAG for short) that we plan to use the rules for. (Presumably they'll soon send me names for their generals).

Sides will be comparable . . . but not exactly equal . . . and all are subject to not showing up or showing up with reduced forces. Infantry battalions have six 4-man companies if full-size; and Cavalry regiments have from 2 to 4 squadrons of three figures each. All units also have a "standard bearer" on the "colour stand" who in not a fighting figure, but is used to show a unit's current cohesion.

Anyway, with luck I'll be able to sit back and watch the game and take notes. I've emailed each player what units they have for this playtest . . . but they don't know what their opponent has -- but it is relatively similar in makeup.

To see our "generals" and a rough map of the fight, go to:
