Not only are they providing the rules for small scale gaming between bands of troops but also a set of cards that they think help add to the experience on the tabletop.
Comrades In Battle was an actual term used by the armies of the period. It referred to a group of two to six men who would sleep, fight, work and die together as a unit. The bond they formed was close and they would almost act as one man in battle.
A miniatures range does support the project but of course, you could look to all manner of producers for the miniatures to use in this game.
I like the idea of focusing the action towards smaller groups of men during this period. The large scale battles never truly engaged me but setting up raiding parties, ambushes and small engagements between individuals would create some interesting narrative experiences.
Will you be taking a look at this?
