Looks good. What rules do you use?

good report, the rules are hex based ?

The hex based table and terrain are all our mate Mick's work (and allot of work went into them too!), while the rules are a joint home made effort of his and another chap called Mike. They cover WSS and SYW with slight changes, while the lads have also adapted Fire and Fury for the hex based system. Not allot of help to you gents who asked I'm afraid but there you go.
As with all hex based rules systems the hexes remove any ambiguity about ranges, facings, flank shots etc. Their either in or their not!
Thanks for the interest.

Paltzig or Kay will be my next game though not in a couple months maybe. But looking to see what info and what others have done. Thanks for sharing.
