During the 100 Years War between <country-region w:st="on"></country-region>France and <country-region w:st="on"></country-region>:st="on">England, bands of soldiers from both sides launched raids into enemy-held territory, burning, pillaging, and slaying as much as possible before opposition could be mounted in strength. This practice, known as chevauchee, is the inspiration for this game of medieval and Renaissance warfare. Designed for fun and playability, Chevauchee is perfect for novice and veteran gamers alike and offers a basic set of man-to-man combat rules, expanded optional rules, and a special system for simple siege warfare. It can be played with almost any appropriate miniature figures, each of which can use whatever weapons it is armed with and is equipped with whatever armor the model wears, eliminating paperwork and speeding play. This book is part of a thematic series of works on miniatures wargaming published by Skirmisher that includes the H.G. Wells books Little Wars and Floor Games and the company’s spinoff Little Orc Wars rules, the Robert Louis Stevenson Book Stevenson at Play, and the Quactica miniatures rules.
