I have finally managed to complete something constructive - the new red set of half sized blocks are now finished. All told there are 128 blocks - 64 infantry, 32 cavalry, 16 artillery and 16 command. I shall tackle the blue set bearing in mind that blue and red are very common colours for military map unit symbols. I intend to make some movement trays as the intention is to use the half blocks in the same way as one would use bases of figures - typically with four for infantry, three for cavalry and two for artillery.
I am planning to run an inaugural game using the new blocks and the recently acquired Hexon terrain over the next few days - I am unsure of what to fight at this point - so may well try and get the grey set finished as well.
Hmmm....Blue and Grey? Looks like a dive into Battles and Leaders may be in order!
