I do like your simple, neat, terrain. Old school and great. Writing down orders. Now that is something to ponder. Wonder if people have tried that for modern rules just to see what happens. Bravo.

I still have "Discovering Wargames" on my shelf.. there is more sellotape than paper now as it was well used for our Napoleonic games in 1970 onwards.
The necessary average dice was made with a six sided pencil with holes gouged in with a school compass. There just wasn't anywhere you could go and get items like that.
