For today's experiment, Ron and I played our non-fixed zone version of Memoir using double all distances.
It is very difficult for Ron to recreate the terrain on Grant's maps using Hexon unless he uses the whole table but the scenarios get distorted if using Memoir ranges and movement rates.
This wasn't the first try but its been a while and in previous tries we didn't go all out and double close assault range etc. This time we screwed up our nerves and went all the way.
It worked like a charm!
EXCERPT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)
"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."
