A TMWWBK game.

We had a game of The Men Who Would Be Kings the other night. We still have a fair bit of rebasing to do but we were keen to have another try out of these rules.

Here are a few photos from the game.













Most of the figures are from Brad's collection with the British from me and Geoff.

The rocky areas are some terrain pieces I knocked up the other weekend for our colonial games.

  1. Wow. Even though I have gotten rid of my small collection of colonials, and think that was the right decision, I always see games like this and want to second guess myself. Osprey keeps putting out good, playable rules. Why do you have to rebase, and how?

  2. Nice looking game - Kings is becoming my go to set at the moment they do strike the right balance between speed and force sizes.

  4. Simple, effective and attractive set-up and figures, Rodger. Question: did the man get to be king?

    Speaking of the M who would be K, if you have never read it, I recommend G. Macdonald Fraser's "Flashman and the Mountain of Light". The Man WWB King is a major character (though you are not told this until the end).

    1. I heard that Sean Connery was among the red coats there somewhere but I didn't see him. Thanks for the tip, I shall look out for it.

    1. Hi Michael.
      We like the rules. To get everyone in our group to like a set of rules is almost impossible. Big PLUS from us!

  11. It all looks very good indeed. I like your sabot bases. I've got the book and am tempted but would be interested if you could tell us more about the actual game besides just the nice photos.
