Spanish mini-campaign... a new start

Post by spqrdave »

We've begun a new Spanish mini-campaign (this is our second attempt), using a mish-mash of campaign rules... based on Columbia Games' War of 1812 board game, TFL's Dawns & Departures, and Piquet's Theater of War. Tactical battles are, of course, adjudicated with Sharp Practice 2. You can peruse the campaign rules and the first three AARs here: https://spqrdave.blogspot.com/p/sharp-p ... ign-2.html

Overall, we're quite happy with the results of the campaign rules mash-up. Current battle result edge goes to the French (as it should)!

Really impressed at the effort that has gone into this to date, and am following with much interest, having followed your v1. Also appreciate the frankness of your "learning moments" and hindsight. I'm developing an 1809 campaign for Northern Portugal and Galicia, but it will likely follow a more traditional ladder route. Hopefully be in a position to share soon.

I've been remiss in not updating this thread with our latest adventures in the Peninsula... the last battle fought a couple of weeks before Xmas:

We've fought our way through the 1812 campaigning season and now the armies take a collective breath and prepare for 1813.

Dave. Tried to look at rules and it said you had put them on the bin and couldn't open them :-(

Leigh

P.s. where did you get Spanish dragons from?
Kind Regards

Leigh,

I was able to get to his rules at this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/119UT8s ... CrbTC/view

As to the dragoons, they look like Front Rank to me...

Thanks. Still days it's in the bin when I try to save it. Wonder if it's because I'm on my mobile?
Kind Regards

Apologies for the rules issue. I'll look into it when I get home and on my laptop.

And yes, the dragoons are Front Rank.

I don’t think we should be posting links to the electronic rules on open forum!
