Hi,

  I'm the one that
voted maybe,if the
battle is around where
I live I'll probably see you all. :D
  Though if it's gettysburg I
won't have a very big army! ;D
  If it was around the mid 1800's
I would have a bigger army. 8)

 Hi ajr10,
as a matter of fact, I also live in CT. :D And please bring union and the field cannon because im short on yanks.

  All the more reason to hold it here! ;D 8)

  I don't think I'm what you would call
loaded with yanks either. ;) If the battle
is in a couple months I might get some
more soldiers.

Well, I could hold it off untill the summer, so then we might be able to meet somewhere else. And it will give seawarrior more time to build up his force. {I need some of that time too. ;D}.

Well seawarrior ;D, other people put paper next to everyone's group of soldiers. It will say the number of men, and the owner, and also the brigade you based it on. If you give me some info, I'll type one up for you.

Here seawarrior, another member posted the rules to a gardenwar. Here they are.Defense is rolled with blue dices. 1 dice per item of defense.

1d6 free for dodging (maybe 1d8 for quick people / animals)
1d6 per shield, helm, breastplate, set of arm armor, set of leg armor
Magic armor items use d8 instead.

Attacker designate their target
All attackers roll their red die or dices
Defender rolls all his/her blue dices
A blue dice roll with a higher number than the red dice blocks that attack. Otherwise the attack hits and the target loses a life stone.
Then the defender(s) -if not vanquished- attack and attackers defend.
When an opponent is out of life stone, he is vanquished.

As, you can see. Nothing very fancy or complicated here. It would not work for large scale combat, but we managed some epic fights with up to 7 characters without much problem.
------------------------------------------------------

I made them a little scenario where they had to deliver their princely brother who had been captured by the evil black knight. To know where their brother was being held captive, they had to ask a woodland fairy that requested that they do four good deeds before she would give them any help. So they killed a wolf that was terrorizing a shepherd, they returned a goat that had been stolen by a goblin, they captured a wanted highway brigand and returned goods that a group of bandits had stolen. After that, the fairy told them were the castle of the evil knight was (in the master bedroom )  and where to find a magic sword to fight the evil knight (in a crypt guarded by a skeleton knight), where to find a magical instrument to put the dragon to sleep (in the tower of a witch) and where to find a key to open the gate of the castle (in the ruins of a keep guarded by a ghost rider).

There was a inn were they could rest, sale their loot, purchase armor, weapons and horses, and hire the help of a knight to help them during their first few quests (because they started with only a knife and no armor).

With this story and game mechanics (plus a lot of playmobil stuff), I managed to hold their attention for more than 4 hours straight. Considering their age, this is quite amazing.

I should have taken pictures…

Hello, Seawarrior ...

Garden Wargaming using the H.G.Wells Little Wars Rules is a lot of fun!

Click HERE to look at a Little Wars game that was pure fun!

And, click HERE for some Little Wars games that were also fun but a little more serious.

H.G.Wells Little Wars Rules are the best rules, IMO, for Garden Wargaming!

Have fun and take lots of photos, so that you can share them here at GW-PC!

All the best,
Richard
