A Close-up of the Units for Portable Wargame

Here is a close up shot of the Red units.  The blue units are identical only blue.

Back row: Grenadiers, Infantry, Light Infantry Front row: Artillery, Dragoons, Cavalry Center: General

There is no unit for light infantry or grenadiers in The Portable Wargame.  Dragoons fight like other light cavalry.

Light Infantry: SP 3, Range 2,  -1 in close combat in the open,  Must take the retreat option if available when fighting close combat in the open.

Grenadiers: Behaves like other Infantry units for movement and shooting.  Close combat at +1.

Cavalry get a +1 to hit in close combat.

I seem to be tweaking this game a lot.  The best part is that it is pretty hard to break when modifying the rules.

    Are these really from the JG website? I couldn’t find anything half as good there. Can you remember which period and/or artist they came from. Have you heavily modified them?

    Many thanks

    Hi Tede,
    I used stuff from C. J. Fiorito. He did a lot of figures for Blenheim/Marlburian period. I used the infantry from here and recolored them as needed. http://juniorgeneral.org/index.php/figure/view/HanoverianInfantryWarofSpanishSuccessionBlenheim2

    Oh, now those are good! JG is a fine site, but some of the figures look a bit weak nowadays.

    Agreed. It took me some time to find those and others…like the cavalry. But there are some fine figures on the site. You just have to dig!

    Nice reviews. I want to ask something, because I didn’t understand (english is not my mother language) if the game is difficult or easy to change rules.

    Because I want to make my own version for Fantasy or Sci-Fy battles.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.
