Toy Soldier Wargame Rules - First Draft.

I'm sending off for a few 54mm plastic soldiers inspired by the Little Wars yahoo group that I've just joined, I made up some rules that may suit my needs so I thought I'd share them on here.

I'm sending for roughly Franco-Prussian War period soldiers and I'll post about them when they arrive.
