Volley Fire 2mm Rules

Volley Fire is a set of 2mm wargames rules,

designed for lots of volley firing infantry with rifles, horse and cannon.

Each player has an army consisting of several companies of infantry or cavalry, and batteries of artillery. Infantry companies are made up of one to five platoons, cavalry of a similar number of squadrons, each of which is represented by one strip of models. Artillery batteries consist of a similar number of guns. Units can be either Close order (c.o.) or skirmishers.
