Battlefield Game Designs releases Buckskins and Rangers, skirmish gaming during the French and Indian War

Battlefield Game Designs released Buckskins and Rangers, their new rules set for skirmishes during the French and Indian wars.

From the release:

Following on the release of two previously successful rule systems, Battlefield Game Designs is pleased to announce the debut of its third skirmish rule system: Buackskins and Rangers

Buckskins and Rangers is an historical miniature game that enables and encourages players to recreate various battles and skirmishes of the French Indian War, while using 28mm model soldiers on their own tabletop battlefield; however this rule system is easily adaptable for players wanting to use figures from 15mm right up to 54 mm.

Buckskins and Rangers has been designed as a fast paced skirmish game in which players are assigned a unit of figures under the command of an officer, NCO or hero. Each figure is given a random number of actions that they can perform in their turn using a random card generating system while dealing with the fundamentals of warfare such as command, movement, effects of small arms fire and artillery and the role that morale plays when the stresses of battle commence.

Numerous examples are included throughout the rule set and several advanced rule sections are also included allowing players to tailor games to their own preferences when using the various scenarios included or when designing their own game scenarios.

Buckskins and Rangers rule set also includes the following items to make this rule set a complete package:
1 Complete Rule Set
12 French Indian War Scenarios
1 Reproducible Game Summary Chart
2 Reproducible Artillery Templates (acetate and paper copies)
6 Reproducible Figure Info Sheets
320 full colour Figure Cards
