British forces, "John company" units, Loyal Indian units, and irregular hastily raised formations trying to put down the rebellious units of the Bengal army. This consists mainly of just the tables & charts. You must have "The Sword and the Flame" rules to use this.

THE SWORD AND THE PIKE! Yet another TSATF variant, this time taking the rules set back to the Renaissance. Pikes, shot, heavy cavalry, isn't that enought?

Modified 3/30/02 in light of playtesting.
SWORD, CROSS, & GOLD A variant for Larry Brom's "The Sword and the Flame" colonial rules set. Conquistadors vs. the Native Americans.
