One important factor was that Woodland tribes usually had a resident gunsmith to repair their weapons. Sometimes this provision was even part of a treaty with a white power. Woodland tribes were nothing like as nomadic as Plains tribes, living in villages where such craftsmen could set up shop.
I used three figures with the amusette (it never got into action - though it would have done if the movement rules Rich suggested had been followed - so I was excused having to cobble together any rules for that battle). A lot of Queen's Rangers were on the table so perfectly justified in that case....
The smallest piece or ordnance listed in SP2 is a light gun (a three or four pounder). I have the excellent Perry Queen's Ranger amusette (a one pounder) and I intend to improvise the two pounder Woodruff guns used on Grierson's Raid and elsewhere in the West in the ACW (probably using a mountain ho...

It was slightly better by some accounts but sti...

Checking the Web no joy although I did download Clarke Arming the Home Guard (PhD Cranfield) via ETHOS which is v informative a...
