Tripods & Hussars is a quick playing set of rules to simulate the battles of The War of the Worlds as described by H.G. Wells. In order to make a competitive game, I've made a few modifications to the situation described in War of the Worlds. The most critical change is that the Martians were more limited in their supply of Black Gas and couldn't simply fire at every copse in sight.
One stand represents one Martian tripod, one infantry company, one cavalry troop or one artillery battery. These rules can be played at any scale, but 6mm-15mm is probably optimum.
