I've done almost no naval gaming these past few months, but I should admit I've still been busy. During this past summer I bought a copy of Muskets & Tomahawks, convinced by the review I heard on the Meeples & Miniatures podcast epidsode 88.
I liked everything I read; the rules are relatively simple and familiar, but there is definitely an 18th century theme. I visited a local Hobby Lobby and picked up several inexpensive packs of Indians and Colonial Infantry in 1/72 scale plastic, along with some discounted Christmas trees for cheap terrain. All together, less than a hundred bucks for the rules, cards, a wide range of figures, and terrain.
