Song of Drums and Shakos

Last weekend, the SDS skirmish rules were tested by six players in three linked one-on-one games. This napoleonic set was used for the SYW without any major modifications. As "Standards" under the SDS rules, the Carlstädter Likaner received a Tokajer drum and the Cossacks relied on the Priest they had with them!

The following skirmish parties saw action (click the pictures to enlarge them):

Württemberger, Garde zu Fuß and Gorcy Hussars

Austrians, Regiment Moltke and Carlstädter Likaner

Prussian Freibataillon von Wunsch

Prussian Feldjäger-Korps zu Fuß
(the Jäger firing from behind the tent couldn't save his kneeling
comrade from "horrible death" at the points of five (!) bayonets)

Cossacks were also present. Thanks to DonVoss for preparing these colourfull scenarios.

  1. Very nice and interesting game - I've never considered SDS for our Indostan campaign. I may have to check it out.
