These rules are intended to refight the battles of the New Zealand Colonial Wars, 1840-1872. They do not cover skirmishes They are based on DBA, and influenced by the article by Ed White on DBA and the Seven Years War (WI65), and Clive Clapson’s article on the Maori Wars (WI63). As in Ed’s article there are two assumptions:

1. The first round of close combat also includes short range small-arms and artillery fire.

2. Troops potency depended on their ability to deliver close range volleys or cold steel.
