Arriba Espana! (Second Edition): Another progress report

Despite the fact that our home office (which is in our converted loft) is a hot as Hades for most of the day, even with the Velux windows open and the tower fan going full blast, I have been working on the book’s draft. The new rules section is finished, and I am currently adding a number of scenarios that I think that players will find useful. To date, these include:

  • Clash of the columns!
  • The Battle for the University City
  • On to Guadalajara!
  • For Whom the Bell Tolls

I hope to add several more scenarios as the week progresses. Putting together the scenarios isn’t very difficult or time-consuming, but drawing the maps is a lengthier process ... and I’m trying to draw them early in the day before the room gets too uncomfortable hot.

The following maps are the ones that I have drawn for the first of the scenarios, 'Clash of the columns!':


  1. Bob,
    How about 'For Whom the Die Rolls' as a scenario title?
    Good to read you're able to make progress despite the heat.

    My new first floor study at the back of our Welsh home is quite cool and much better than our old loft room in that respect (which is why I normally wrote on my laptop in the downstairs sitting room!).
    Best wishes,

    1. Arthur1815 (Arthur),

      It would be a great title for a scenario … except that Graham Evans has used it for the title of his recently published Spanish Civil War rules!

      It sounds as if you have settled in very nicely into your new Welsh home! I’m hoping that when we move, my new wargame/toy room will not be in the loft as it is in our present house.

      All the best,
