(Rob Morgan submits the following query.)
Comments on rules of late remind me that in the early days of Miniature Wargames there were several useful short sets published. In Issue 25, June 1985, there was a single-page, and damned good, set for the Franco-Prussian War, written by Stephen Allen and on a single page of A4. He mentions two other sets which must have been in issues 1-24 earlier in the ’80’s, one called “Drums Along the Watusi” by Richard Brooks, and the second, “Riverine Actions” by Andy Callan. Both one-page sets, it seems.
I can’t find either, though I’ve got a copy of the Franco-Prussian rules. I wondered if any other aging member had a copy of the other two sets. There may indeed be more than just these two. Duncan, the editor, seems to have made a plea for rule writers to send them in.
