Planning the next play-test

Over the past week or so I have been trying to cope with a lot of pressure at home and at work, but today the burden has just begun to lessen slightly and I have been able to begin the planning process for the next play-test of my modified version of Joseph Morschauser's ‘Modern’ Period Wargames Rules.

The first step was to decide on the scenario. This has been designed so that the number of tanks involved will be greater than in the previous play-test, and that the defending side (the Morschauserlanders) will be able to use pillboxes, minefields, and barbed wire as part of their defence system.

The second step was to get the troops that will make up the two sides out of their storage units and check that everything is in order.

The final step was to draw up the map of the battlefield, and this is shown below.

With a bit of luck I might be able to begin the play-test tomorrow evening and complete it either on Saturday or Sunday. I will then write up an appropriate battle report and publish it via this blog.
