Many thanks to Ian, Charlie and Rob for subjecting themselves to my barely prepared scenario hastily cobbled together during my lunch break to the mantra of "It's only a playtest!"
Each gent ran a small section of British regulars or Militia / Bandits foraging through a zombie infested hamlet. I took the Zombies as an almost impartial GM. Victory points earnt as D6 per forage point gained plus another 2 per zombie re-deaded.
We all picked things up again quickly enough re-learning the value of Leaders, Mobs and chatted through potential tweaks. I've also picked up Songs of Drums and Shakos so will have a read through and see what mechanics might want to be transferred across.
With a combat rating of three, muskets and bayonets (counted as heavy hand to hand weapons) they were equally effective shooting or in combat as long as they stayed in formation with their Sgt. Pretty much as I expected though this approach didn't see them advance far.
I didn't initially much best, or any, use of Mobbing up the Zs happy to let things play out as they might. Once I did I managed to get a decent nip in on one of Ian's lads. Seeing the obvious bite (6 rolled) "Zeek" got left behind and soon overwhelmed.
