Possible changes to my Operational Art rules

In light of some of the comments that have been made to earlier blog entries, I have been thinking about the changes that I might like to make to my OPERATIONAL ART rules. At the moment these can be summarised as follows:
  • Replace the use of D12s and D10s with D6s
  • Re-examine the Activation Card system and possibly replace it with something slightly more restrictive in terms of how many units a formation can activate each turn
  • Simplify the current strength and morale marker system to reduce the possibility of confusion
  • Try to make the existing Combat Resolution system easier to understand
The necessary changes to the rules should not be too difficult to make, and with luck I should have a working draft ready for play-testing sometime soon.


  1. Hi Bob,

    All are very sensible potential changes - particularly the dice question! I am looking forward to seeing the new draft in due course.

    All the best,


    1. David Crook,

      I am thinking of using mechanisms that already gave a successful track record (i.e. borrowing from HEXBLITZ and/or THE PORTABLE WARGAME).

      All the best,
