While I could pack up and go tomorrow, there is still a lot I'd like to do to get ready and it looks like the next week at least will be ideal for much needed yardwork and gardening. Two expected down days have been compromised by unexpected domestic duties. There has been some time to work on honing my 54mm rules but not enough time to get play more than a turn or two.
I really like the way the game is heading though with a blend of old and new ideas but soon I need to haul my mind away from matters toy soldier and back to preparing terrain and figures for Huzzah.
|Don't be fooled by the absence of a grid, this game is intended to be able to played either on or off grid.|
Having gotten the scale monster our of my head for a bit, I've settled on a 4 figure "company" as the basic unit. (Essentially what fits in a 4" square.) This may be independent or be grouped into "battalions" of 2-4 companies. A couple of these plus a Brigadier make a Brigade. How it all works is mostly still in my head but the on line rules have been kept up to date as new ideas get added, tested and rejected or expanded.
If I get at it early maybe I can finish the actual playing Friday morning before its warm enough to get back to work outside.
