Best Allies are wargame rules for 18th century army level land battles. Each unit is a battalion of infantry, a regiment of cavalry, a battery of guns or a unit of skirmishers. The rules are independent of figure scale but rather let the player choose what scale and measurement system they want to use. We would recommend figures between 28mm to 15mm in size.

Different rules for; formed infantry, Loose order infantry (light), formed cavalry, light cavalry, dragoons, artillery (battlion/galloper guns, field artillery and howitzers) and skirmishers.

Army lists for; Great Northern war, American Indian wars, war of Spanish Succession, Jacobite risings, Seven years war, American war of Independence and the French Revolutionary war.

Special rules for; units still using pikes, shock units and platoon fire
