On The Seven Seas by Chris Peers

In an an earlier post I said that I would give more details of my recent trip to Oxford. On The Seven Seas - Osprey Wargames No. 7 was picked up for a couple of pounds in a second hand book store in Woodstock on the day that we visited Blenheim to see the Shakespeare play. For such a bargain price - I thought it was worth a punt and have to say that I have enjoyed reading it. It has spurned me on to start thinking about how I could used the hundreds of Flintloque dwarf miniatures that I have painted up for The Great Sauerkraut Wars as I think small independent bands of dwarves with flintloques and blunderbusses would work well with the system of small units led by strong captains that is the core of these rules.
