See The Elephant
In terms of the ACW set, I have now taken my scribbled pencil notes and things that were drifting around in my increasingly overloaded brain and put them to paper. And, what is more, I have found a name for the rules.
So, Version 1.1 of my ACW square-grid rules is now available. I give you:
See The Elephant v1.1
What's different? Well, I have tidied up and organised the terrain rules into their own section, moved a couple of optional rules into the main text (since I was using them in every game anyway) and streamlined the combat procedure so that modifications are easier to apply in the order in which I think they should happen and in a way that's logical.
As a bonus, how about a scenario?
The 1864 Battle of Westport has defied me as a playable game for a long time (although I was 'presented' with a Prussian-Danish 1864 reworking of it as my final game at my UK wargames club before I emigrated), but I managed to strip it down to its bare essentials and stick it onto a chessboard to give me something that played out pretty well.
