The Basement Generals had a play-test of Sam Mustafa's Maurice last night. See the complete report on the Baron Von J's blog. This rule set was a lot of fun. I especially like the card system that drove the action. This rule set is going to take repeated play to become proficient.
As a group we decided that our heraldry would be based on barn yard animals and a color. I chose the mighty Duck first, but had a change of heart. I wanted to me more of a hunter than a food source! I switched to an Owl as the mascot, with the color purple.
Jaye sent out these nifty worksheets, where with a little color fill, we could create our uniforms coloring. My OOB is six regular infantry, 2 elite infantry, 3 cavalry and 4 artillery units. I haven't decided on the color scheme for Cav and Arty yet, however there will be some purple on each unit.
