Thinking "Colonials" in 2011

Lately I've been wanting to play some Colonials.

And I think that I want to play some "The Sword and the Flame" as opposed to the rules I wrote about ten years ago.


Well because TSATF is a very good set of rules. It has been the leading (as in most played) set of Colonial rules for over 30 years . . . and, as in the photo above, fights often come down to a very exciting finish.

Okay, that's fine . . . but I have a problem.

I last played Colonials in California. I had (and still have) the Imperial forces . . . but my friend Bill S. had (and still has) all of the Native forces. So we're now 1200 miles apart and in different countries.

That means I need to get (and paint) a lot of natives before I can do much . . . *sigh* . . . so I guess that that will be one of my projects this new year.

  1. Hi Jeff,
    Reinforcements By Post does a very good job for my natives. Turn around time is also a happiness though Col. Pettygree disagrees.

  2. If you can hold out. Perry Miniatures is set to release plastic ansar this year, lots of plastic ansar, Mwhoo haha haha.
