It's bad enough tackling a complete refit of 2 armies when you have a whole free weekend ahead (as planned) and you know exactly what the planned outcome is and that doesn't change partway through. Neither of those expectations turned out to be completely true.
You might say there were a few kinks in the process. This is going to take a few more days to clear.
On the upside, when I'm done, including restorng the remaining Oberhilse units to the 1860 uniforms they were cast with, there will be room for everyone as well as room to finally paint the already planned additions; guards, highlanders, Ft Henry Guard sorts etc.. It will conform to the long standing desire to look a bit like someone 100 years ago built armies from what boxes of toy soldiers they could find while retaining the Not Quite Fenian Raids or Britain in the ACW look of my original vision but in 40mm ( See Rebel Island Report). It will also provide the Table Top Teaser type games that are my wargaming equivalent of comfort food.
It'll be up to the rules then to make the games a little longer and more engaging, exciting and challanging again. It's not just about time or number of turns but 2-3 hours on average and 18-24 turns with time for prebattle recce and skirmishing and time to regroup after a failed attack or defence, bring up reserves and try again.
