Petite Guerre

If you are interested in the SYW but don't famcy painting lines and lines of troops maybe try the warfare on the fringes - Petite Guerre - the war of outposts.
  It's one of the unique factors of the SYW is that there were lots of units formed for the war away from the main army. Usually these formations were clothed differently than the main army and they would often be led by people with a colourful past and often populated by foreigners. The world of Freikorps and Chasseurs, of picquet companies and hussars and Grenzers awaits you.

Great games can indeed be had with a few figures aside.Great plots for games and characters like Von Trenck or the school master who led a Prussian freikorps.
Great uniforms too.
