Weekend Clash

Over the past couple of weekends we have been playtesting our rules for our 1:1 Napoleonic tactical project. I managed to take a couple of snaps but the photo quality is still pretty poor. It does give some idea of what we are trying to do though, and we have been having a blast.

At this scale muskets can start being effective at 8 to 12 in (200 to 300mm) and artillery canister range is 3 feet (900mm) !! Effective ball range can almost cover any table we can throw up at the moment and specialist rifle units are damned annoying now.

Right now we've been limited to a 4x8 foot table which is simply too small at this scale but we are in the process of putting together the next table evolution at 6x12 feet. Final plans are to eventually have a 6x24 foot table for these games. What we really need is a 12x24 but short of building a rolling scaffold and sending the kids out to move troops, I don't think we will ever solve this problem! Just the fact that I've even thought of this should show how insane we really are.
