I have been trying to find a good set of rules for the Boer Wars for years. I looked for so long that I finally gave up. For about the past year I have been interested in finding a passable skirmish game that I might like. See, I have been painting so many strips of row upon row of bayoneted troops for about three years straight. I really like painting them, but now I’m really interested in a change once in a while. So I bought Sharp Practice from Toofatlardies and loved it. Then I bought Through the Mud and the Blood, and about ten pages in, I thought “This would be brilliant for the Boer Wars/VSF in 6mm!” Before you can get anyone’s interest in a conversation about how to tweak the rules, you have to have something to show for it. Here it is, my first unit for my newest project.
This is 1/2 a company, 50 men or 1 unit in Through the Mud and the Blood. It is scarlet coated British troops in the green trim of the 24th.
