Revisiting Jutland and the Blocks of War and dealing with Lethargy
I have tidied up my book case though and so my entire naval library is now on display - the 1812 Russian campaign, Vietnam war and the various French Foreign Legion title I own being replaced by the Spanish Armada, various Pirate related titles and some WW2 titles. I have also had the opportunity to rethink some of my naval Jutland based ideas. I think I may have 'over-egged the omelette' to an extent; I have made the rules perhaps a little too far away from the original idea in respect of complexity.
It is always good when messing around with a rule set to take a few days out from it - it serves to clear the mind and a set can look very different when revisited after such and interval. I will explain further in a later post.
Plans for the blocks are moving along quite well and my only difficulty at the present is sourcing some of the correct sizes. Again, no problems per se - just solutions waiting to be found!
I am revisiting the tank museum at Bovington at the end of the month, together with a number of T.E. Lawrence sites in the immediate area and so I am confident that my creative juices will be topped up and something close to my previously insane schedule will resume!
