A lot of people hate point systems or army lists but I find that they give a balanced game otherwise it becomes a lead arms race.
I have also tried Principles of War and quite like the game system, which I use for my Zulus. It makes an interesting game. Having re-based a portion of my army for these rules, my current re-basing will ultimately bring those units into line with the new basing.
The progress so far:
I have re-based two battalions off infantry, 1 Regiment off Cavalry, plus two Artillery Batteries.
|Old bases on left, new bases on right.|
|Old battalion basing on left, a re-based battalion the right|
I have also to repaint all the cannons as new research shows that they were painted in an almost black grey and not the light grey I have them at the moment.
