Actually Greg the rules are not a skirmish level BLB but rather a specific set written by Clarence in their first form several years ago. Since then they have been adapted for the period 1660-1760 and we are in the process of finalizing them right now. Most of the period flavour comes from the Faction Lists section of the rules. The Factions provide force construction information, special rules and special characters for each Faction. This game pitted a Cultist Faction (incorporating all of the 17th and 18th Century suspicion about Devil Worship, Witches, Black Magic with generall Outlaw thuggery) against the inhabitants of Anytown who are mostly poorly armed civilians supporting by a couple of quasi military detachments.
Force size could be as small as 16 models if you chose an all mounted Veteran orbat or as many as 53 if you chose an all infantry Recruit orbat.
Another important aim at this point was to stretch the use of existing Warfare Miniatures as far as I can in terms of imagination. The Cultists with blazing torches are all pikemen with no conversions at all.If you look closely you'll also see pikemen with right arms removed and replaced with Cavalry pistol arms, Enthusiastic cavalry painted as Buckriders, pikemen as Dog handlers and other little changes.
Much more to come on this as you will see.
We are also now looking for a imited number of playtest Groups and would be happy if our original BLB Magnificent 7 were interested. Others of course can get in touch
