Combat General is a set of rules for playing tabletop games with miniature figures – and it acts as a portal to another time. Relive the epic struggles of the early 18th century by taking on the role of a general of the day. A complete set of rules based on the perspective of the brigade commander that showcases the interaction between evolving methods of attack and defense as practiced by infantry and cavalry units of the time. The units in your brigade will not always use the ideal tactics if you fail to keep your formations in linear array and allow yourself to be attacked!
