Planning for an Inaugural Game

This coming weekend will hopefully see the first game taking place on my Hexon set up (assuming it all arrives in time). I have given a lot of thought to how I shall be using this terrain over the coming months and have decided that the first game I use it for will be something rather special and rather out of the ordinary. I am not going to spoil the surprise but suffice it to say it will feature the blocks, the Town in a Bag buildings and the musket based variant of Bob Cordery's Memoir of Battle rules for the 19th century. Essentially these will be the rules I used for the Belgium fracas (both of them and should the plural of fracas be fraci?). Fairly obviously then, it will be a horse and musket era game.

For reasons that will become obvious I am really looking forward to this action as in many ways it represents the completion of a circle in my war games career so to speak.

More to follow as the week goes on but I should point out that if the Hexon does not arrive then this particular game will have to be postponed - it would not look as good on the Axis and Allies maps to start with. I do have a plan B though so at least one game will feature on the blog over the weekend at some point!

I am looking forward to seeing your battle report ... especially as you will be using your Hexon II terrain for the first time.

All the best,

Hi Bob,

I have three possible games in mind - so at least one of them will get played! Two are land based and the other is naval.

Naturally MOB and MoBaS will feature - possibly even the Musket version!

Can't wait!

All the best,
